You wont see much of a difference during games but you will notice it when running multiple programs.
It also future proof, more and more games and apps now are taking advantage of dual core.

Yes, once the apps start utilizing the dual core, single core CPUs will be a thing of the past. I'm not a hard core gamer, but I'm sure the gaming industry are putting a lot of stress on programming games right now to use multi core CPUs. It will be fast.
