You should see a bit of a difference , and if its that cheap for a quad core then you should probably go for it. Annnnddd sorry for the really long time to reply :(

I love this processor, i bought mine on ebay in 2009 for £35, cheep because of dodgy picture and seller had rubbish feedback, i took the risk half expecting it not to work or be the worst at overclocking.
Well it overclocked to 3.53Ghz and 4 years later still running all pretty much all games at max settings.
Amazing processor

Brilliant CPU. Bought mine new in 2008 and i'm still using it without issue. I have been running this computer off the wall 12+ hours a day since then and the CPU has chugged alone nicely with all the subsequent game generations.
