A 400 MHz clock-speed increase on a netburst CPU (like your Pentium 4) will not make a large increase in performance, i.e., its not worth it for you to buy a new CPU. However, if you were to save that money and upgrade to a Core 2 Duo CPU and motherboard, such as the E6300+Gigabyte DS3, you would see a sizable performance increase. Then, if you overclocked from there, it would become huge!
