What cpu does it currently have installed? If you're not sure, search windows (in the start bar) for "system information". On the first page look for the processor, around a third of the way down the list.

Right, what does it say about your system model? Normally it lists the chipset or motherboard model here.
If it's z77or h77, you'll be able to use the 3770k. If it's h67, z77, or h61 (I'm guessing it will probably be h61), then you won't be able to use the 3770k.

What will you be using the PC for? Gaming? Rendering? Will you be overclocking?

Heavy Gaming and the budget for it is 150$ max (Recommended less).

Have you already chosen the rest of the parts in your system?

For gaming I'd go with an i5 over an i7, the i7 will give you no noticeable difference in performance for the foreseeable future. By the time it becomes useful for gaming, you'll probably need to replace it anyway.
I'd also get a haswell cpu (4xxx) unless the ivy bridge (3xxx) is quite a bit cheaper.

The main thing to consider if you're not overclocking is what connectivity you need. How many fans will you be running? How many hard drives/ssd's? Do you need any specific features (such as legacy PCI slots, etc)? Also, do you need a mini ITX or micro ATX board, or are you using a standard ATX case?

And im not going to add anything but these parts +a motherboard.
Another thing, please suggest a good heavy gaming processor if needed.

I can't see what's in your cart. Could you list the names of the parts?

Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
SeaSonic S12G-750 750W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply, Intel Haswell Ready
SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
and what's left is a mother board for the i7 3770k

I'm going to assume you're not overclocking, since you haven't listed a cpu cooler. If this is the case, I'd get an i7 3770 if you really want the i7 for whatever reason, but I'd still recommend going with an i5.

This motherboard should be fine if not overclocking.

Bendel if you're still there I have upgraded/salvaged my Inspiron 620 unrecognizably into an great gaming rig for me, if you did indeed get a i7-3770k let me know because I didn't think it would work.
Here's some of my process if anyone wants to skim over it trying to transition to a gaming rig from an inspiron 620: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2049987/intel-am...

I have a lot more on the subject in my past threads or if anyone has questions, u can post a thread and link me as well.
