Yeah, you'll want a new motherboard because the best CPU you could upgrade to isn't that much of an improvement over what you have now.


I have another Motherboard with a 1150 socket, is that better?

Is a Gigabyte B85M-D3H

Use that mb get a i5-4670k.

You can't use a i5-3570k with neither motherboard you do have.

Just make sure not to update the bios on that B85 board or you won't be able to overclock.
