No it's not worth it.
The Cpu you currently have is a quad core.
I3 2120 is a dual core.
I would suggest sticking with the Phenom especially with the overclocking ability it has.

Just get a better GPU.

i3's are faster for single threaded apps and about the same for multi-threaded apps vs your quad core AMD, but I agree that it is not worth the upgrade.
