I think the PII would be a better upgrade for me because my X2 is kinda old. and to be honest your post confused me
From what I understand, you were considering upgrading the 5K BE in your main rig, or the P4 I sent you.
Lets say the 5K BE gets ~750 PPD, which seems reasonable for it. I believe you said the P4 gets ~550?
If so, you currently get 1300 from those 2 computers.
Say you upgraded to a Q8200, which would get ~1300 PPD. A very good upgrade over the P4, especially when OCed. In this case, you would get about 2050 PPD.
If you upgraded the X2 to a Phenom II that got ~1300 PPD as well, you then would be getting ~1850 PPD or so.
Therefore, the Q8200/Q8400 would be a better upgrade
