  1. No harm at all. As long as you can afford it. You can also OC it into a 965. Or get a Rana & see if you can unlock it's cores.

    It's just that, for gaming, GPU power is more important than CPU power. But more CPU power certainly has hurt no one :)

    But if you do have the extra budget, depending on what games you're gonna play & at what resolution, you might also wanna invest in a more powerful GPU - GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) < Not needed if you wanna play WOW/SCII @ 1440 X 900 or something.
