Yea, that CPU is probally one of the biggest fails in the last 5 years, if you compare the successes of CPUS in the last 5 years.

Now, it whould give you a massive boost! see if your mobo supports X6

The 965 looks to be about 20-25% faster overall, but i dont know how noticeable that'll be depending on your needs.

Here is a direct comparison between the 9950 and the 965.
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/102?vs=21

In the U.S., the 965 is about $120-$140, whereas the 1055T you can get on these forums for $140-160 or so. Some might argue that the 965 is the faster chip, but if youre overclocking anyways, it's irrelevant and you gain +2 cores for a few more dollars. What should be compared is a 965@4ghz vs 1055t@4ghz
