Hey, I'm currently using an xbow with 1150 dps (no other stats other than increased atk speed), just wondering if I'd see a dps increase with an xbow around 1000 dps but with a socket for a crit dmg gem, any advice appreciated, thanks!
Depends how much lower however. Getting a 1002 dps would stilll be wayyyyy better.

yes your dps number will go up by leaps and bounds.
not just the neat attack speed genrated dps on the char sheet.
there is a DH gear generator tool you can use.
Basically any x-bow with with at least 1k dps (actual damage being like 800-1100ish, 1.10 APS,)
with a socket is better than any 50 mil or $250 bow or x-bow that does not have such dps stats or socket.
of course remember to look for a 1k dps x-bow with 1.10 attack speed and high base damage and a socket.
if you get lucky you can get a good affix like vit or dex for not much more.
a Emerald star costs about 700k in the AH (a little more to make).
Whats nice about such an x-bow is that you can eventually put a perfect emerald in it.
This is a great way to get through act 3/4 Inferno before patch to be boss.
These type of x-bows are going to be in super high demand within a few weeks. As rolling such an affix in Seigebreaker farms is next to impossible and thats what EVERYONE will want as a sub GOLDY wep until they get a socket/crit damage 1k dps x-bow.
