    I wouldn't even try to fix or upgrade an OEM pre built pc.
  2. I would suggest an Intel i7 4790K. You'll of course need a new Z97 mobo (I have the Asus Z97 Pro). My reasoning is simple: Devil's Canyon will serve you well for many years, like your current rig has done. Later this year or early next, Intel's Broadwell CPU is expected. A Z97 mobo now will allow you to upgrade if you so desire without buying a new mobo.

    An alternative is the i5 4690K, a little slower and without hyperthreading, but less money.

    I wish you good luck in your upgrade quest.

    I wouldn't try to upgrade it, it's pretty outdated. Start over and build a new system.
  4. i5 2310 is a good choice for a gaming rig
