Why don't you OC your X2 a little? And even if you don't, the CPU change will hardly be an upgrade, it's not noticeable. It would probably be even less than 2-5 fps in most cases. What res is your monitor anyway?

No, it's not worth it. if you don't want to overclock then you need to look at a bigger performance increase at stock (ie extra core). It's only 200 MHz more, not 300.

Get an Athlon II X4 or at least X3. You will see a bigger performance in some multithreaded games.

its not worth if for the extra 3-5FPS, see the benchmarks

if you really want the athlon II x265, just over clock your current 255 a bit and you have one.
