Hey,

I have an intel core i3 2100 @ 3.1 ghz, and i was wondering if it would be worth it to upgrade to an intel core i5.
My specs,

Intel core i3 2100
Sapphire radeon HD 6850
1tb HDD
4 GB RAM
Antec VP 450w PSU

I do a lot of gaming on my PC and was wondering if it would really make all that much difference.
PS i dont really want to spend more money ;)  , but if its worth it, i will

If you don't want to then don't. It will make a difference probably more noticeable in some games (like BF3 which likes quad cores) than in others but your current one should give you enough CPU power.
Still if you can afford it and don't plan on doing any major upgrades in the future why not?

For the most part snagging a better GPU would net you the biggest gains ^^
