3GHz is a step up on a quad but why would you care if you only want 1 core speed?
My friend is building new pc and he has these two processors lying around, both are rarely used.
so he is giving me q9650 for 10$ and q9400 for 4$
What do you think? if I get q9650 can I get some performance boost in general task like browsing?

I think you are right, I saw where some one was running one of those converted Xeon's (X5472,120 watts) , just make sure you have good air flow to cool the VRM's. (Q9650, 95 watts)
