Since it's not all that large of a cpu upgrade, have you considered waiting to see what the new Peryn, Barcelona, and DDR3 bring to the table? Your cpu should be more than enough to hold out until then. I'm still using a single core San Diego and I don't have any problems or hesitations with anything I do/play yet.
