Powerful thing you have there. Your CPU's generation was a real good one, and very few things should be a concern.

Without a specific worry it's very hard to recommend a costly upgrade.

Also, my first time wasn't difficult at all, but it was a bit crunchy, and filled with tension.
The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs
It's not that difficult, but no matter how many times I've done it I can't help feel like something is going to break when I'm locking down the heatsink/fan.
I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

You mean Haswell processor? It is not difficult, just scary if it is your first time.

200 dollars isn't going to net you a cpu upgrade; it's around what a 2500k/3570k/4670k all cost, 10-15% upgrade at the most. Guess you could sell your cpu and drop in a 2500k and an air cooler if you will overclock as an upgrade.

Even if you're going to overclock, sandy/ivy/haswell are all close. Ivy and Haswell run hot.

Your current processor is still sufficient for your needs, don't bother with an upgrade yet.
