I just bought a Galaxy gtx 650 ti boost 2gb for $120 and im more than likely going to buy an i3 3220 this weekend but I want to know is it worth the $125 over the Celeron g540 I currently have in games like skyrim and metro 2033 and last light that I cant play but got on a steam sale?

IMO yes its worth it. You get a 800mhz clock speed boost, a faster architecture (about 10-15% at equal clocks) and hyperthreading which makes a massive difference in dual core CPUs. Overall I'd say just as a rough guess 50% more power. How much that translates to real world gaming idk but I would think it is worth it
