Upgrading to i3-2120 Sandy Bridge Worth it?

Does upgrading to Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge from Intel Pentium G2010 Ivy Bridge worth it? I have 8GB of ram 1866mhz and yes the ram clockdowns, and will be paring it with my GTX 650 Ti OC Ed.

Im planning to open more tabs in a browser, multi task, autocad, photshops, office, and play games like GTA IV, NBA 2K13, Dota 2, Hitman Absolution, DiRT 3 and Sleeping Dogs

2nd Option: From Intel Pentium G2010 SB to Intel Core i3-3220 IB

Will it be worth upgrading?

  1. Updated with my second option, i3-3220
  2. I would go a minimum of a 3220 if you upgrade. try out your currant CPU before spending money. You may be happy with the gaming performance that it offers.
  3. Best answer
    If your budget is tight and you already have a good intel board I would go for the i3 3220 if you can. It will be sufficient for 'most' current games. But there are already some coming out that can use 4-6 cores. So you may want to start saving now for a bigger upgrade in 12 months or so.
