Most pcsx2 games being bound by peoples cpus, performance tends to increases linearly in most situations with games. So a 20% cpu OC will equate to a bit under 20% performance improvement.

So you 2.5 vs a new 3.1. This can be fairly easily guesstimated since they are the exact same architecture. You will see likely a 20% increase in performance since the 3.1 is ~22% faster.

Regarding archieteture you probably already know this but if the clock speeds are the same i7 > penryn > conroe > x2 > phenom rev1 > a slug > pentium 4.

i7 is only a bit faster clock for clock then penryn and doesn't justify the exorbident price. If you increase internal resolution of your games to like 2800 x 1500, even your 8800GT videocard is going to start becoming the bottleneck. :p
