You'd be better off if you stopped being lazy and put on your learning hat and overclocked that E7300. Then consider getting a C2Q
my E7300 is running at 3.07 already, couldnt really do much with the guide because the bios version in that guide must be different from mine. i dont have the DRAM frequences options.

Oh damn. I didn't even realize that's a G31 board. Does it support C2Q's?

Oh okay. You might be able to get 3.0Ghz out of a Q9400, but I'm not sure as you only have a single P4 for CPU power. Someone else will have to answer that haha.
But in BC2 moving to a quad will make a huge difference. I moved from a 3.9Ghz Pentium E6600 to a 3.2Ghz Q9450 and gained 10-15 fps

thats all i needed to hear !

i'll OC my C2Q when i buy it like i did to this E7300, about 10-15% should be enough.

You really just need a decent motherboard to really find out what that e7300 has in it. I run mine at 4.0ghz 24/7 and play bc2 acrross three screen pretty decent fps sigrig

OP just as a suggestion I would not purchase a new quad solely on the expectation that you will overclock to get your desired performance increase.

A Q-9300 is at 2.5Ghz with 6Mb of cache. I don't know where you are purchasing your chip but amazon sells it for 208.00. These quads thrive on high cache amounts. 6Mb is ok. But if you are serious about upgrading just your CPU for a good performance gain you should really look at a Q9550. This chip has 12Mb of cache and is stock at 2.8Ghz. This chip will start you out with better performance and be easier to overclock with a non-overclock friendly board.

In all honesty if your spending this much money on a CPU you should opt to spend a small amount more and get the better chip. If you get the 9300 and want to overclock you also have to factor in the Heat Sink and Fan, the stock is not good enough to do any kind of large overclock 2.5 -> 3.6. So this is an additional cost. $30.0 for a decent new HSF.
CPU Comparison - you can play with the toolset at the top to see other tests.

Another thing to note is that the Q9300 has a small multiplier of 7 which means your Mobo will need a high stable Front Side Bus. This means it is a harder chip to overclock. Your mobo is extremely limited to what you can change so it might not work or even work to what you expect.

If you are going for this upgrade I'd really consider you look at the Q9550 over the Q9300. I think you will find the Q9550 will give you great performance even at stock.

i will get Q9550 if its not TOO expensive, the performance difference sure is big lol
