Unless it's giving you trouble I'd just wait. If something was giving me trouble I'd probably get a 4770k, though a 4670k is also perfectly acceptable. If intel+mobo is too much then probably an 8320.

Absolutely. It's a whole different socket type for Intel and AMD. There's even different socket types between different generations. However AMD is pretty good at making their older CPU's backwards compatible with newer motherboards.

Looks like your computer is from an OEM like HP or Dell or whatever, is that right? The Gigabyte 2AC8 looks like an OEM board. Officially, it supports up to an AMD FX-8150, so that would be your best upgrade path without replacing the motherboard.
And yes, if you want an Intel CPU, you need a new board.

Meh, wait to see how AMD's next set of APU's do.


Because they aren't making anymore desktop CPU's. It'll be only APU's.
