You would have better luck to upgrade your motherboard to give you the option to overclock the i3-530 or replace down the road. OEM boards typically are not very good with providing options for CPU replacements/upgrades (keeps you buying new :)  ), plus don't allow for overclocking.

the i3 + 5770 are still a solid gaming combo, why the sudden urge to upgrade?
