If you upgrade your CPU to Q9650, the only thing you will notice is your 3dMark score increase!
Mine went up by 3XXX points (but who plays 3dmark2k6?)
Other things like games will .....scale up but not by much. I would say 10% at max at the 1920 by 1200 res etc
At least when I play Age of Conan, it feels a little bit faster but, not by much. I have not tried any other games...
And sadly 3.8Ghz is not a given... otherwise id buy that CPU
