I want to get rid of my amd because it s a complete let down in online games which use 1-2 cores..

what do you think,will the performance drop in multi core games and will i get better results in single core games?

if i can wait 2-3 months, i could afford i5 6500-6600 but i dont wanna wait :/

I would wait the i3 might be a little faster in single threaded but the 1055t has 3x the cores. Is your 1055t overclocked? Wait and get an i5 newer games should benefit from more cores.

single core wise i3 6100 seems to be close to x2 better according to most benchmarks/comparisons but i'm not sure.

it's not overclocked since i cant go past 3.1 regardless of how much voltage i rise.(maybe it's because it's 5 years old,cant tell. )

thing is where i live i5 costs exactly x2 more than i3 6100, i was thinking of using 6100 for 1-2 years then sell it and switch to an i5 or maybe even i7 later on, since i'll have a 1151 motherboard anyway

Oh..ok, at double the price, getting the i3 now and upgrqding later would make more sense. The dofferemce here between the 2 is about 70 dollars and maybe less.

I can say that the i3 is a nice little chip, just built a machibe for a student that featured one, and am thinking of makibg a lan box that uses one. Snappy little chip with good gaming performance.

The DigitalFoundry has done some great gaming comparisons using an overclocked i3-6100 vs a wide range of old and new Intel processors. Here are a couple of videos to get you thinking.

Select a board that supports BCLK overclocking, flash an appropriate bios and for gaming, you probably won't have any reason to upgrade your CPU until after Skylake.
