Currently running on a i3-4130T 2.9GHZ just wondering about upgrading it, what would be the best step up from that and would it be worth it on a smaller budget?

Personally, I'm an Intel guy. So I'd have to suggest the i5 7600. I found it on Newegg for 219.99 USD. This converts to, based off of current conversions, 182.79 Euros.

 

That being said, I've been hearing a lot of good things about the new AMD RYZEN series. It's supposedly able to challenge the Intel top of the line for less cost. I don't think I'm ever going to switch though. When it comes to CPUs, most people are VERY biased on manufacturer and often are VERY loyal.

Im also an intel fanboy but the new ryzen series is fantastic. Single core performance still isnt completely on par but the value for performance is fantastic. I suggest a Ryzen 5 1400 or ryzen 5 1600. Both are excellent processors. And much better value than an i5 as it stands right now.
