Performance-wise, it is a good upgrade if you are still using i5 2XXX cpu, any other more recent i5 gen will get you roughly the same performance (or even better)

If you plan to stay on a 1080p / 60 Hz monitor, no point whatsoever to change the CPU, probably in the next 3 years+. Now, for 120+ Hz, it will definitely bottleneck (it won't matter what expensive / powerful GPU you got)
