I mainly game on my computer. Right now I do it on a resolution of 1280x1024 with the help of my trusty 9600GT. If I were to upgrade to the 720BE and overclock it to say, 3.5GHz, would I see decent increase in FPS? I'm planning to upgrade my 9600 GT in a year to a HIGH END card and I'm worried it would bottleneck the 720 BE.
I can't tell you a quantitative increase in frame rates, but when I ungraded from my 5000+ at 3.2 GHz to my Phenom I 8750 at 2.9 GHz, I was blown away at how much smoother everything ran, from my desktop to my games, everything was better.

Who knows where we will be in a year. Honestly wait to see what april 6th has in store. The New Phenom Quad cores are coming to the market so either price drops or better chips. 945 is the golden ticket but you should see a nice increase in frames upgrading.
