go for a better one, like mine the x2 4200, there well cheap now and it will be a HUGE increase in performance then thats for sure.

EDIT but the x2 3800 would be alot faster too, although as i said the 4200 is cheap so mayaswell go for that

Or the Opteron 165, A lot of people including me have one and its a great chip, and last time i checked it was only $100.

4200+ and the 165 come in s939. I'm running a 4200+ right now, upgraded from a 3200+.

X2 3800+ is like two 3200+ because each core run at 2.0GHz

Single core 3800+ has clock speed 2.4GHz, it should perform better than dual core 3800+ in single threaded applications

I would say the 3800+ or the Opty 165. They are both cheap and would be a definite performance boost.

I resently upgraded to one.

One thing to note before installing your new Dual Core CPU.
Make sure your motherboard BIOS will support Dual Core. Check your motherboard's Support site for that cpu.
