The cost of than CPU could grab you a SandyBridge setup.
save up a little and get a LGA1155 like a 2500k with a z68 or if you can find them you can pick up a high end p67 for pretty cheap now. DDR3 memory is cheap as chips nowadays too. I think you would still be looking at around $450 to $600 doing this though.
my 1155 sandy bridge upgrade cost me about $430 initially, and after selling my mobo and CPU, and giving away my RAM, the upgrade cost me around $150.
well back on topic, Chapper, IF you can get that cpu for say $200 or less it is worth it and will last you a good year or so but not much longer. personally I would stay with the quad you have and save up to get a nice rig. its far more budget smart that way.
