Money is better spent on improvments else were in a system, HDD performance for example would be better 'noticed' then a CPU with more per-clock performance.
Please do not speak on a personal level, simply because your personal usage may be provided by an old P4, many people here:
A. Push their hardware with CAD/rendering/encoding/folding/etc
B. Value having more cpu power than they need.
On a side note, bring your computer over and see if you can complete some of my work-- I do a lot of simulation work, a lot of which is done using Matlab, Solidworks and ComSol, and it is imperative that I have as much CPU power as is possible.

Yeah this does not seem to be a very high clocking platform.
Then again, 5700MHz is around the maximum from the i7-920s...
