I had 8400 E0 with a pq5 pro to a Q9450+Tpower I45. Was pretty noticeable with multi thread support apps like encoding and or quad core supported games. A 4ghz dual vs 3.4ghz quad. I prefer the quad. But I did not like the heat and noise. I cash the Q9450 into a B50 with 790x. A quad is better for sure for every day all around. For games you probably just need 50-60fps and we all know it all comes down to gpu.
What stepping is your Q9450? Mine was a C1 and hot as hell.
