For immediate advantage yes.

I would get the fastest. It could run more stable and you can add a
faster CPU later for very little. Now that chips are plummeting. The
2500+ Barton was $83 at newegg a few weeks back. Run with PC3200 RAM
that over clocks perfect at 3200+!

When your PC gives a little they give a lot.
