  1. It will run better, with higher clocks and larger cache. The real question is though, how much better? If you will be running stock speeds (no overclocks), I recommend you check out Tom's CPU charts for a good answer. If you can run the PII 965@3.8Ghz or higher on your board and cooler, the difference will be well worth the cost. If not, you might regret upgrading the CPU for $100 or so instead of the CPU, motherboard, and RAM for maybe only double the cost of the CPU only. If you're using DDR2, especially cheap, high latency, DDR2, don't expect big gains at stock speeds.
  2. If you have not purchased your video card, you should combine the cost of the PhII 965 and the 560 --- snag an HD7850.

    Clock-for-clock, Denebs are around 5% faster in gaming. In CPU-intensive games this can reach 8-10%.
