Should I upgrade from sk-6?

I currently have a sk-6 with 80m panaflo 1a fan on a 1800+.
It currently runs at 42c idle (1.75v). I am upgrading to a 1700+ dlt3c and was wondering if I will see a big decrease in temp with an upgrade of a heatsink or/and fan. I'm keeping this in the living room (HTPC) so I want to keep it somewhat quiet but want to overclock it around the 2.3 ghz level.

While the SK6 is not a top of the line performer, it is considered a respectable HS... If you want to improve performance significantly, you will have to spend considerably more and go with something like an SLK800 (or maybe an SK7), with a good quality fan, like a Smart Fan II.

Edit: my advice is to try the new CPU with your SK6... see how it does first... If it seems to be running too hot, be prepared to spend $40-50 to get better performance, without sacrificing for noise.
