Im giving my i3-2100 to my little brother and I'm looking for a slight upgrade. What's the best bang for the buck atm? Budget is around $200. It doesn't have to be a significant upgrade, I just need something to use that is slightly better for gaming and some streaming.

i5-3570K is at around 210$ and is easy to overclock, you'll get alot more juice than the i3-2100.
Though it depends if your motherboard supports IvyBridge.

Please update your signature system, it is clearly wrong since it says you are using an Intel processor on an AMD motherboard...

3570K is a good one, you could also look into a 2500K if you can't go Ivy.

The 3570k is a little faster and cooler stock for stock. Overclocking is the same as always, depends on your setup and the chip's quality.
