Should I get the Intel i3-4130 dual-core processor or quad-core processor with this build?

I was wondering if the dual core processor is good enough if I'm planning on playing games like skyrim on ultra.

    Replaced the 750 ti with the less expensive, but faster 260X
    replaced the I3 with AMD 6 core cpu, a touch slower than the i3 in single threads (basically 1 - 3 fps slower with the same gpu) , but faster in mutithreaded apps
