Yes. Unless you have $800 to go with Core 2 Duo, its a great upgrade.

Yes its a very good and worthy Upgrade. You will notice an Immediate performance increase not only becasue of the extra speed but also because of the extra L2 cache..Also Alot better for Multitasking due to it being a Dual core.

I have a few more questions would you go with a fx57 or the 4400 and which one will be a better overclocker?

Well, the FX57 runs faster stock... 2.8GHz vs 2.2. The FX is also a San Diego core, which are known to overclock very well... higher than the 4400, I would estimate. The main difference is the FX57 is not a dual-core.

What's more important to you, the ability to multi-task or raw, single-threaded performance?

I'm sure you've heard this before but if you want to move to dual core and want the best overclocker, get an Opteron 165. It's less money than both the chips you are considering and people have been getting over 3GHz air cooled on the new steppings. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103588 The only major downside to the Opteron 165 is a maximum multiplier of 9x. If you want to overclock high you need to be able to use a high FSB on your motherboard (334 FSB x 9 = 3GHz).

I'm getting a Opty 165 in the mail in a few days. If you want a mean OC get a DFI LanParty they are superb motherboards with way to many OC features even a whole DFI sponsed web site dedicated to helping people with Overclockng/issues
