In my opinion yes, i can still play the games i enjoy with no issue. It seems like it was pretty powerful back in its day and honestly i have no issues with it. Haven't tried overclocking mine yet though

If you can't move to the Core I series then this is the best bet. And Yes, you would note a massive improvement as this runs on 4 cores and yours on 2.
