No, but they'll be around the same.

No games are threaded well enough to support 4 cores (technically eight), and you'll get relatively the same gaming performance with the Phenom II, but it will be WAYYYYYYYYYYYy cheaper.

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.
