upgrading an upgraded Compaq SR1630NX

Specs: XP, Athlon 64 3500
I have an upgraded SR1630NX. I use the computer for home computing and for my vice: the Battlefield2 modification called Project Reality.

Everything in the computer is stock except:

1. upgraded to 2.5 mb of RAM
2. upgraded to Corsair 550W power supply
3. upgraded GPU to Geforce 8800 GT 512mb

I achieve playable fps (25-35) on most maps at medium settings but with the old single core cpu I cannot run any additional applications while gaming (such as Mumble for directional in-game VOIP, or Fraps for recording video).

I thought of upgrading the cpu to the Athlon 64 x2 4200. I found one online for $65.

Any advice?

As long as the socket type is the same, it's a no brainer to me for $65 (Signed: Frugal PC guy here who isn't into upgrading all his sh*t every 3 years).

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
