Hi , i m thinking to upgrade my pc for gaming
cpu:core 2 duo 2.9 ghz
Graph card: GTX 460
Mother board: biostar

I m thinking to buy a new cpu so for that i ll need to buy a new mother board (ASUS H81m- LGA 1150)
The availble cpus at the store is G3320/I3 4430 and I5 4440

Does it really worth to upgrade to I3 4430 / I5 4440 ? Is the I5 4440 ALOT better than I3 4430 for gaming?
What do i do guyz these the only cpus avaible here atm and i cant pay more for an I7 ; do i keep the core 2 duo or?

More about : core duo

I would upgrade to the i5-4440. There will big a significant increase in performance, but you will need to get new RAM as well. 2x4GB.
