That is a good point, and indeed, is how I got this current system.
The only thing is that the deal was for a small form factor iDeq made
by biostar that included the CPU.  The computer is similar to a
shuttle.  So getting a new mobo is not an option here, although I
would certainly wait for a deal like this if I wanted a new system

I guess the consensus is that I am not going to get much difference in
performance by simply plopping in the new CPU, or if I do, it won't be
$50 worth of difference.
