Default upgradeing?

Ive got a Amd 64 2800 a gig of ram and a geforce 6800 and when i play counter strike source i usually get around 70-80 fps sometimes dipping as low as 40s and i was wondering how much of a improvement am i going to get getting a faster processor i do have the slowest 64 after all. I am thinking about going somewhere in the 3700 range maybe higher if I scrounge enough money. any thoughts

Get a 939 socket cpu, get a 3000+ if ypou can. Your gfx is fine, just download coolbits2 and OC it.
