The 6000+ is a capable processor. I installed Win7 (on my test system) using my 5600 OCed to 3Ghz which would be equal to 6000+ and OS seems much smoother than XP.
Gaming wise I went from the same 5600 OCed to 3.5Ghz to PII X3 720BE at 3.5Ghz and all the games are buttery smooth, no occasional jump/lag using my ATI 4850.
Just check if the board is compatible with newer procs, so may be you can upgrade later.
Whats the mem on that PC?
Hope it helps.
