Despite the negative conclusion, I would still consider the X4 620 if I wanted a budget quad-core chip (for multithreaded tasks).

From what I gather, they could massively boost performance or have little effect, depending on the actual threading of the game, so can anyone fill me in?

This was pretty much my experience in all games that are supposed to benefit from quad core CPU's, such as ARMAII.
3 cores is the sweet spot for price/performance given the state of multithreaded games.
