Superior single and dual core performance. It also opens the path to an i5 or i7 upgrade later.
Also, the i3-4330 has been on sale for $125 often enough lately I'd get that. It's currently back up to $140 but if you're not buying immediately and can wait for a sale, I've seen it for that price once a month on Amazon/Newegg and it goes for a few days.
EDIT: Correction, it's CURRENTLY that price but is out of stock (ships 1-3 weeks).
