    No. You cannot fit an LGA 1155 socket CPU into an LGA 1150 motherboard.

    You'll have to find an LGA 1150 socket CPU since you've apparently already bought the board. Fortunately for you, the Haswell i7 4770 CPU line is LGA 1150 which is a smidgen better than the Ivy Bridge i7 3770 you're looking at. They're priced very similarly so you shouldn't see too much of a price delta between the two.

    CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($294.99 @ Newegg)

  2. not the same socket, so either you get lga 1155 mobo for that cpu or return cpu and get 4770k
  3. Nope. Not a chance it will work.

    You need an LGA 1150 chip for that board, e.g. this.

    The other option is to get a Xeon, which is basically the same thing without integrated graphics.

    ahhh dude i have this graphic card http:// i can play all my games with that XEON ?
  5. Um. Not really, though it depends on what games and what resolutions.

    I'd suggest getting a far cheaper motherboard/CPU (Z87-A and an i5, probably), and getting something like a 760 or 280X.
  6. you should have gotten an i5 and a cheap motherboard and used the money on a way better graphics card like the gtx 760 or r9 270x. That gt640 isn't a good gpu at all. Return both of those and get an i5 4440 and a cheap h81 1150 socket motherboard and get a better gpu. Or the Xeon as mentioned for cpu.
