Question Radeon RX 570 + i3-4160

Have just bought CoD, however I experience a lot of game stuttering.

Would a CPU upgrade - say an i5 - improve things or I should have to build a new system?
 
The only difference between your CPU and the minimum spec is 1M cache, but your CPU basically makes minimum specs. However, minimum is never the best spot to be in when it comes to gaming. Going to an i5 or i7 will help for a little while in AAA titles. However, unless you can get them for cheap there isn't much reason to use that stopgap method.
