So here's what I'm wondering - would an upgrade to a dual-core processor (a socket 939 Athlon 64 X2 4200+ or 4400+) be worth it? Would I see a performance increase? The X2 4200+ is $80 at Newegg, and I've seen a used 4400+ that I could maybe get. So should I go for it? How much would you pay for a used 4400+? It's just the processor, used, so I'm thinking maybe $60. Is that a fair offer?
