Age of Conan question

  1. I was just wondering how much of a performence boost I would be getting going from this setup.

    Nvidia 8600GT 256mb GDDR3
    Athlon 64 X2 Duel Core 3800+
    2gb of PC3200 ram
    Windows XP SP2
    250GB Sata HDD



    To this setup

    AMD Phenom 9500
    2gb of PC6400 ram
    Nvidia 8600GT 256mb GDDR3
    Windows XP SP2
    250GB Sata HDD

    I know the video card is not that great of one for Conan and newer games but I was on a tight budget and could only afford the new motherboard, ram and the new cpu.Btw this is my new MB MSI K9N SLI-F Motherboard - v2.0, NVIDIA nForce nForce 570 LT SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, PCI Express, Gigabit LAN, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID. Any feed back is appreciated :)

    Funny, I just reccommended a board similar to that to someone.....

    It should give a boost in performance, but I doubt it will be that large due to the GPU.
