In this thread someone else was asking about a similar upgrade and I opined that he wouldn't see much benefit. Guess I was right. It's a pricier undertaking, but if you want to see some real improvement, switch to an Intel. I was an AMD fanboy for years, but the plain, somewhat sad, truth these days is that Intel is cleaning AMD's clock on raw performance.

> do i need to turn on its extra power?

I'm not even sure what this means... Overclocking? You'll probably see a little benefit from overclocking. Unless you happen to have a game that is right on the verge of running at 100%, though, it's not likely to make anything playable that wasn't already playable.
