E8500 vs Xenons games&everyday use

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there!
I do own e8500@4.1 Ghz with P5E3 Premium/WiFi-AP @ at 8GB RAM and AMD Radeon 7950HD. I am wondering if I will see certain performance increase in upgrade to 4 cores LGA 775/771 processor.

Like X5450, which seems to be equivalent of Q9650. I am able to get it for 35-50 pounds. I am not going to upgrade whole system this year for sure, I am wondering if I will see certain performance increase in games and usual use. Of course I will oc it as well.

I will use this guide to install it: http://www.overclock.net/t/1384920/good-news-for-the-lga775-now-771-is-available-to-convert-to-775-motherboard

So my questions are: Will I notice difference, what the difference will be, which one I should be aiming for. Thanks!
