benchmarks or experience with blast/fasta on different cpus? especially cache impact.

Hi 
	I'm looking at what systems would be good for running
blast/fasta nucleotide searches and am coming up empty in trying to
figure out what impact large cache would have for these programs.  As
the chip prices are so massively affected by cache size for every 
vendor I've looked at I'm wondering if anyone has information on 
this especially as regards sun ultrasparc II chips and intel Xeons
in multiprocessor (4+) systems.
