You should be able to hit at least 3.3GHz and above with X2 5400+ BE. That's not a bad price either.

Not at all worth it, peformance downgrade on stock settings, slightly higher overclocking potential but no guarantee

Depends on how good the part you get is. Overclocking will be much easier thanks to the unlocked multi.
