  1. The fact that it's six cores won't help in gaming, but the fact that it's a Phenom II instead of an Athlon II will help in CSGO. It won't help in BF4 as much because your 750 Ti will also limit performance in that game. If it were me, I'd spend the 25 euro to do it. Are you sure your motherboard can handle the processor?
  2. I'd say no, their performance clock per clock is almost the same and those two extra cores won't really help you in games, if you plan to stream however that could get better but not by much.

    By itself it would not help that much, but if you bumped the clocks from 2.8 to 3.2 or preferably 3.4 or so then yes, it would make a bit of a difference. Since it does not have an unlocked multiplier you would have to overclock via the FSB. This should be fine, just remember to keep an eye on your hypertransport and memory clocks, and adjust those multipliers as needed. Man, you're taking me back a little ways here
