Upgrading to i7 from e8400- i need help

Hi guys, I want to upgrade to an i7 from my e8400. Do you guys think It's a good idea or will I notice a big difference?

I don't know which i7 to get, hopefully someone can help me with this. Best model, best bang for buck?

That means I'm going to need a new mother board. What do you guys recommend best bang for buck on the 1366 mother boards?

I don't want to go over $300 on each of these items separately.

Thank you very much. Trust you guys will help me on this.

  1. Hard to say if it'd be worth it, depends on what you do.

    I game/internet on an E8200 (OC'd) and it'd be better money spent for me if I just upgraded my GPU and hard drive to a SSD.

    If you encode videos all the time then the i7 will be great upgrade.
