There are certain games in which my computer struggles a bit, and its the CPU. I was wondering if getting an i7 3770 would be worth it in 2019 or if i'd be better off buying a new computer (i have an oem HP) or just sticking to my i5 3470 for a bit.
 
Assuming the OEM BIOS actually supports the 3770 the gains will be limited, you mainly gain hyperthreading which will help a bit but not significantly. Unless the 3770 is really cheap I’d say it’s a waste of money as you will likely find yourself want to upgrade again in the near future.
