HI

I have a mac pro v.1.1 (2006) with 2x 2ghz core duo (intel 5130) 8gb ram, 4tb HDD.
Past year Mac pro started to be slow, It take too much time to render video, browse Safari, etc, I tried to reinstall Snow leopard and I guess this machine is getting old and Im getting often annoyed, my new macbook pro is faster then this.

Right now I'm thinking to boost the processor speed. On ebay I find good deal for 2x 2.66ghz quad core Intel 5355.

But my question is, is it worth it to upgrade? in comparison 5130 vs 5355? and in 5355 and recent version of quad core?

thanks for help?

Macbook Pro 2ghz, Apple MacPro 2x2.0 GHz Dual Core Xeon, 8 GB RAM, 1.250 TB HD, Mac OS X (10.5.5), 1TB Time capsule, 2TB external HDD
