4000+ to 5600+?

Hello, I have a Amd Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2.1ghz and i was wondering is it worth upgrading to a Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.9ghz??? ( i can get the 5600+ for about $35)

the 5600+ is the highest my motherboard can handle (according to the link below)
Will games run any better with the 5600+ vs the 4000+?

This is my motherboard: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c01077676#N396

I am currently running Vista 32 bit

    No not really. Compared to a modern processor there would be pretty much no noticable performance difference. That computer is so old you are better off just getting a new one. Even something low end with an Ivy Bridges Pentium will be a million times better than that computer.
