It is worth it although it needs microcode updates for secure operations.
6287SE is the best x86_64 CPU that doesn't, it is slightly slower and
lacks the slightly higher memory speed - with that you will also see
better peformance (see cpubenchmark)
Btw no need to buy a brand new one get a used as CPU life is 20+ years.
You'll end up spending a decent chunk of change on dual 6386SE to the
point where I would advise saving up for TALOS 2 (way better performance
and upgradability) - unless you want x86 6386 to the play latest games
