If you were going to be using it for gaming I'd say it wouldn't be worth it as you'd barely notice the difference. Seeing however you want to use it for folding you will definitely see a difference with 8 threads folding away at a faster clock speed.

With DT's only little stats there, is 60$ worth an extra 15k PPD? It comes down to an extra 0.4 cents/PPD (60$/15kPPD), definitely worth it and his example is only at 4.5, you may be able to squeeze out another 2.5 to 5k ppd with the added 300MHz of speed you proposed running the chip at (if its stable)
