Okcnaline : I dont plan on spending much more on my PC as i have just bought the GTX 970 and a new PSU, i'd rather stick to what i have. Would you recommend the 15 2500k instead?
James Mason : I already have the GTX its in my case a working, but the CPU is bottlenecking it, thats why im looking to upgrade my CPU. Yep the socket on my mobo is LGA 1155.
Razvan_mz : Would you recommend a certain one?
yes. i5-2400. I tried to find some specs for the motherboard, but this is the max cpu that I see compatible. it's still good compared to a new one like 4460, slight improvements were made over generation, but not that huge to just change the mb+cpu. http://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp=793&cmp=2230
