the 10 fps he was talking about was the increase from an E6400 to an E6600. (though I'm not sure of the accuracy of this)

While I cannot be exactly sure of the numbers, compared to your Pentium D you will get probably around double the fps in your games with an E6600, maybe even more in games optimized for multi-core (as most new games will be). And even better (in my opinion), running background processes, or even having three other applications running will not have much negative effect on games at all. So if you hate some in-game music, you can just open iTunes and listen to your own stuff and your fps won't change.
