Both the Athlon 64 X2 5000+ and the Pentium D 950 would spank that CPU.

In general use for the most part it's going to feel as fast however, when you start dumping some heavy load on it you'll notice.

But for what it's used for it's perfect.

If you overclock it you would be able to play the majority of games out there without much of a problem especially if you pair it with a decent card.
