X2 6400+ be a worthy upgrade?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Got an old box, doing her up, she's got a X2 4000+ in her, would a X2 6400+ be a worthy upgrade? What are worth these days?

Not looking to spend much.

Grab yourself a cooler and start overclocking the cpu you already have.i believe you should be able to reach 2.5ghz stable.

I went from a 4200EE that would do 2.5 oced to a 6000 that does 3.0 stock and my fps in games went up a fairly significant amount at the 1280*1024 resolution that I play at.

It was a worthwhile 40 dollar upgrade for my purposes.
