Is it worth it to upgrade a E2160

I am on the fence about upgrading my 4 year old PC. I bought a new graphic's card a GTX 460 and have 4 meg of ram running windows xp.
Would i see $169 improvement upgrading to a Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor?

Or should i just wait until i'm ready to upgrade to windows7 and replace the MB and a newer processor?

Would the CPU upgrade carry me for another year or so? I mostly play games like WOW and RIFT. and don't require cutting edge just decent playability.

  1. Not worth the upgrade for a part that old I would hazard. Can you overclock what you currently have?

    I have it over clocked and running stable for years at 3GHz. And that is kinda what i thought. Best to wait and scrape up the cash for a complete overhaul. thanks.
