http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/88?vs=53 The amd beats the q6600, so it'd probably beat the q6700.

If it's free change, you can do it, but are you planning to upgrade soon? If not, do the change. If yes, don't worry about it.

You'll probably need to do a fresh install and everything...

TL;DR; Do it if it's free and you mind doing a fresh install.

As long as you get an AM3+ motherboard the upgrade would be viable.
