Would an i7-3820 be much better than an Intel Q9550 OC to 4.0mz ?

I was thinking of building new computer for gaming (existing one is like 4 years old) and was looking at getting an i7-3820 with say 8GB DDR3 1666 memory. Would this be much of an improvement from my system below (if not, I will wait another year). I play BF3 multi player and stuff like that.
Comments and opinions appreciated. Thanks, OneHumongousLoser
