It really depends on what you do with your PC. I don't see a 920 at 4.0 to be lacking unless your doing something like streaming without a capture card, then you'd want something like a 3930k as x264 takes advantage of all cores/threads. But keep task manager open and watch performance as you game and see if your cpu ever reaches above 80% usage.

We can only guess, if you want a definitive answer as to if it's worth it then do what you normally do but with some resource monitoring applications open and take note if you see anything maxing out or bottlenecking.
