Yeah, you could experience about 25% or more performance loss is some cases due to the low IPC of the processor, depending on what your current GPU is it might be better to upgrade your CPU/motherboard first.

Depends on the game you wanna play tbh.

Shot through the heart and you're to blame, 30fps and i'll pirate your game - Bon Jovi

Take me down to the console city where the games are blurry and the frames are thirty - Guns N' Roses

Arguing with religious people is like explaining to your mother that online games can't be paused...
