Pretty much yes, but depends very much from the games and from internal resolution.
You should also consider an AMD alternative (especially if you'd like to OC), in particular the FX-6300 that with a decent OC (around 4.4GHz I think) should reach the same single core performances of that i3*, and you also have 3 time the number of cores (so you can effectively use the MTVU hack, or performance gain in any multithreaded software, I don't know much about Dolphin).
If you think you'll never use more than 2 cores (but nowadays is easy to use more than 2 cores in PC gaming and other softwares), you don't plan to OC, and you really care about power consumption, then the i3 is the right choice.

Estimation based on the CPU benchmark present in this site:
Ryzen 7 3800X | Noctua NH-D14| Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro| RX Vega 64| 2*8GB Patriot Viper 3733MHz C17@3733MHz C16| Samsung 840EVO 250GB + 970EVO 512GB NVMe| 4TB Hard Drive| Samsung C25FG7 + Samsung S24D300 + Samsung S24F250| NZXT Phantom 410| Enermax Revo'Xt 730W| Gigabyte M6900
I recommend to upgrade the GPU. Get a 7870 or better.
If anything the cpu is what will hold him back.
