In general gameplay I think so. And I also think you won't find a big difference between a 2.4 Ghz CPU and another overclocked to 3.6 Ghz. Sorry but our poor 8800 GTX/Ultras cards won't allow to take advantage of CPU power in Crysis, if you play with maximum detail at very high resolutions (1600x1200 or more). Maybe when the game fully supports SLI...
