Yes in games you will see the diference. But what about multitasking ? You will not have HT anymore. But yes, if you will not be satisfied with multitasking, you will can upgrade to dual-core cpu. What about ram ? You will buy 2x512mb or 1x1gb now ? I will recomend you that you will buy 1x1gb, and then add another one, when you will need it.
