  1. 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?

  3. 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.
  4. Get an Athlon II X4 or at least X3. You will see a bigger performance in some multithreaded games.
