The 6400+ wouldn't be worth it. I went from a 3800+ @ 2.7GHz to a E6420 @ 3.2GHz and the X2 was absolutely slaughtered. I'm on i7 now, but that's a different story altogether. Anyways, most high-end single GPU cards see a bottleneck right around the C2D 3.2GHz mark, and considering the C2D's slap the X2's around, I wouldn't consider the 6400+ much of an upgrade from what you have, especially if you're willing to go for a Phenom II triple or quad.
my motherboard is M2N-E from Asus, don't think it can support Phenomon II... I think it can only support Phenomon if i change the Bios. Would the Phenom eliminates the bottleneck though?
