im not sure, but shouldn't mafia II take advantage of more than 2 cores? If it doesn't or maybe you have to change a setting, but if it doesnt take that advantage, like most games dont then a dual core thats OCed higher would perform better.
why dont you overclock it to 3.5ghz and see if that makes a difference. clock for clock benchmarking will answer all your questions. it shouldnt even be hard to do. just bump up the bclk. and prob with no extra volts. so it would be a win all around.
