Would this upgrade be worth $120

In all likelyhood yes, it probably would give you a small bump in performance, but not enough to justify 120 bucks. As I mentioned above, it may also greatly reduce the life of your motherboard assuming it does work. Running a CPU that has a higher TDP than the motherboard supports can cause it to burn up..Literally in some cases. This factor is increased because of the fact that obviously your system isn't new, so it already has some mileage on it.
Yea its a performance bump, as long as you know that
1. It may not work
2. This is a very real possibility if it does work:
