Need help with I3-530

I just purchased a new gateway with a core I3-530. I want to Upgrade to core I5-670. So here are my ????

The motherboard is a Gateway H57, Will the Motherboard accept this upgrade and other than the cpu swap will I need to change anything in BIOS?

All I do with the computer is play games. Will I see a major improvment with the I5-670. :ange:
