Raw gaming power yours but not by much because similar GPU's and yours is only 1GB which rules out eye candy at high resolutions.
Multitasking his!

Thanks for the feedback :)  I have one more quick question, would it be worth it if I upgraded to a 2500k series i5 to be able to overclock? or should I just stick with my 2320?

The I5 is a better CPU in the long run, whether it is worth it is up to you to decide but remember that more and more games are going to come out supporting multiple threads.
