    You will have to purchase a new motherboard. That is a socket 1156, the 4770 and all the new haswell CPUs are socket 1150.
  4. i have an i5 760 2.8ghz should i upgrade ?
    cause i got an nvidia gtx 780 and i think the i5 is weak for the 780

    thanx for the fast reply really appreciate it
  5. Have you OCed the 760 yet, they generally have a lot of OC headroom
  6. no havent oced my 760 but im afraid that the processor is too weak for the gpu
