Would it be worth upgrading from a [email protected] to a Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 which i would overclock aswell, Will be mainly gaming.

Tbh, I'd forget about upgrading socket 775 altogether. Unless you can get it for really dirt cheap. Personally I'm going to wait and see how things unfold with the new intel cpu's before I consider upgrading. Same goes with the graphics, the new ati cards are expected to be released on the 23rd of this month, so either you could get a better card or get another 4870 for much cheaper.
