2mb cache vs 8mb cache?

    I have a Maxtor 120gb (2mb cache) installed as my master. It is partitioned
    78.3gb:36.1gb.
    I also gave a 30gb slave (Full).
    I just bought another Maxtor 120gb (8mb cache). Both Drives are Maxtor
    DiamondMax 9.
    Should I use the new drive as the Boot - Primary/Master?
    Will I see any increase in performance that would warrant me from putting in
    all this time. Backups and reinstalling everything could take me over a week
    or should I just use the new drive as a slave.
    Is there much difference between 2mb vs 8mb cache?
    Some System Specs to consider:
    MB: ECS K7S5A
    CPU: XP1800
    RAM: 1gb PC2100, 266MHz
    OS: WinXP Pro
