You will see a good drop in temps (especially idle temp) and a tiny boost in performance. I know because I did a very similar "upgrade" recently.

Consider the Pentium E6700 (not the older Core 2 Duo E6700) if you want a cheap and fast CPU for your Socket 775 board. Raw performance should be about three times that of your your P4. The E6700 is available on Amazon for ~85 dollars.
