Effect of secondary cache?

Effect of secondary cache?

A nontechnical question:

What effect should the Indy PC to Indy SC upgrade have on processor usage,
if one is doing mostly 2d graphics?  Currently, most applications demand
processor time almost exclusively through the "user" category on gr_osview,
some of them start to use about 50% each of "user" and "sys".  I realize
this is not the most efficient way to monitor processor usage or system
efficiency, but generally, what is the significance of these categories on
"gr_osview", and is addition of the secondary cache going to be useful here?
What about the R4600? What effect should that have?  Thanks in advance.
