Yes that is a good starting point.
you can also google for some benchmarks.

As a rule you do not necessary get that much more performance (its not 
double speed) but with the right applications, you will at least get an 
increase and of course the memory limit on 32bit might be a issue

  When working on a computer you have to know enough:
  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
