people told me not to upgrade to a 6 core because it wont make a difference in gaming makes sense only at 2.8ghz (stock)
but this one would have a much higher GHZ so my question is well this make decent upgrade or not for gaming

i currentyly have my amd athlon x4 620 OC to 3.25ghz

now if i got this new processor i would overclock to 3.8ghz
i might get a AMD Phenom II X4 955 and save xtra 20$ i heard both can easly hit 3.6-3.8ghz easy

simple and easy question is well i notite a lag reduction if i do this in games

this is the rest of my pc
