Foxconn G33M MotherBoard CPU and RAM

Currently have a Dell Inspiron 530 with OEM Foxconn G33M (Not Dell G33M02) and running E8600 Core 2 Duo 3.33Ghz CPU with 4 gb DDR2 800 Mhz RAM (4 1gb sticks).

Will upgrading to Q9650 Core 2 Quad 3 ghz or QX9650 CPU and CORSAIR DDR2 1066Mhz PC-8500 RAM be of any significant performace improvement?

Using primarily for streaming 1080p Video across home network via XBMC and PS3 Media Server runing on a PC from External HDD plugged to USB 3.0 and streaming to PS3, Apple TV and Xbox 360. Plus some photo shop photo editing, no gaming.

  1. With the processor there will be like 30% of improvement. With the RAM I would upgrade to 8 Gb because of the PS3 server and the Full HD video streaming.

    Good Luck!
