Well...the 3770 is a better CPU.
But not that much better, in relation to current software.

How much were you planning to spend on this new CPU?

What are all the other parts in this system?
I got h61m-k GT 1030 8 ram and 240 gb ssd and i pay for it almost 40$ yes ik its kinda expensive but everything is expensive here in Algeria

A net of $40 sounds reasonable to me, but it won't be a huge boost in gaming. There will be certain instances where hyperthreading matters in games, but it's a bigger boost to productivity applications rather than gaming. It also can depend on what $40 means to you specifically.

Can't say. Don't know what the pc does or is intended to do.

The i5 is a 4core-4thread cpu, that wasn't too shabby in its day and is still respectable, for a quad. If the programs you use do just fine on 1-4 threads, upgrade isn't really going to do anything worthwhile. If the programs use 5-8 threads then the 3770/k will be a noticeable difference, even if in nothing but overall time spent on getting results.

In my opinion the biggest diferences are, as mention the multi thread and cache and mostly the cpu graphic chip, that goes from a HD2500 to a HD4000 (in the case ofc that you are using the cpu graphic chip).
