Well the difference really is just a slight core frequency speed increase.

Unless the price difference is minimal/within budget, then I don't believe its really worth spending the extra on the i3-2130 over the i3-2100 for the sake of 300MHz

The price difference on NewEgg is about $25 which personally I would probably rather spend elsewhere on the build if the budget was tight.

The over-clockable SandyBridge CPU's are the K-series. K-series shows the CPU has an unlocked multiplier. (i5-2500K, i7-2600K ect)

T is for a low power CPU. The i3-2100T is slower than the i3-2100 (2.5GHz vs 3.1GHz).

There's about a 20% performance difference when comparing them. REF: http://compare-processors.com/forum/core-i3-2100-vs-i3-...
