What do you use your PC for? If you just play games, then its not worth it at all, but if you do intensive rendering etc, Hyper threading would increase the performance, but wouldn't still be much for the price imo, unless you can sell your i5 or something

Well a typical user wouldn't benefit much from that but I actually had to build another computer recently and I was able to pick up an i7 3770K at microcenter with a good mobo for cheap so it really depends on if you have a use for the i5 or are you planning on selling it to make the cost worth it. It really isn't a HUGE upgrade though and probably not worth the cost.

Is there any pc builder on this site for reasonable price?

You mean someone who would build it for you? Do it your self mate!

I'd say no at this time. Unless you are encoding or doing activities that incorporates all those threads, it would be a waste.
If you are set on an i7, I'd wait for Intel's next lineup of z97 and see if then if you want to upgrade.
