Right now I'm running a i3-3245 + a Radeon 7950

Is it worth it to upgrade to an i5-3350p?

yes. But if possible, upgrade to 3570K and overclock, which will get you better performance increase. If not 3350p will do. your videocard is high performance enough to fully utilize a quad core intel.

depend, i5-3350P have slower clock. but more core. What are you using it for? better off with a i5-3550 or better

It's in a mini-itx case with no room for anything but a stock cooler. Also the SFX form factor power supply is limited to 450 watts. It doesn't come in any higher than that so I'm thinking overclocking is not an option.

I'm using it to play MMOs and Rome II mostly.
