Why do you ask?

It's not a bad CPU. But incorrectly named. Its more like an Athlon II x4 as it lacks any form of L3 cache. Makes it a bit slower then you would normally think. Good for a budget gaming system, but there is plenty better options.

You don't "need" to... but it would be highly recommended.

Need? Depends on what your doing. You want to run Cubase, Photoshop and Battlefield 3 at the same time? Aye, you'll NEED to upgrade.
