Will this CPU work with my system?

Greetings! My question is. I'd like to update my CPU as I currently have an I3 dual core.

My computer specs are.
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3h |CPU socket LGA 1155| |CPU support 2nd and 3rd generation Intel core Processor
GPU - Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 670 windforce x3


I got told by someone that as long the as the CPU socket matches that of the CPU it will work. But just to make sure I'm interesting in buying this CPU

Intel Quad Core i7 3770 3.4GHz Max 3.9GHz 8MB Cache LGA1155 CPU Beat 870 2600

I prefer only intel and I would like an I7 Quad core.

Reason?

Playing games such as BF3 and Max Payne 3 on the highest graphic settings. It shows my GPU using about 60% - low 90% |Never ever seen it reach 100% load while gaming| But I still get low FPS every once in a while. I checked my CPU usage on the task manager and it shows it around 90%+ load while gaming. It also sometimes goes to 100% load. So I'm thinking If I got a better CPU something with a Quad Core It would increase my FPS.

Thoughts?

P.s. My ram is more then enough :) 

Recently bought a new PSU the Thermaltake TR 600w.

Really appreciate your time thanks!

You don't need an i7 for gaming, i5 are for gaming, you won't get any benefits from the i7.

Thanks alot mate! I'm going to buy one right now. Would you also recommend me buying an aftermarket cpu cooler rather then using the provided intel cpu cooler?

No, the i5 3570 is a locked CPU so you can't overclock it, you can get the i5 3570K and try and overclock it, not sure if your board supports overclocking.

If you are leaving it stock then don't bother with aftermarket cooling.

Your board does NOT support overclocking, so unless your planning to upgrade that to getting the 3570k would be a waste. Only P67, Z68, Z77 chipset boards can overclock on intels 2nd and 3rd gen proccesors.

I'm buying it on ebay and I can't find the 3570 only the 3570k - I won't attempt to overclock until i have more knowledge about overclocking this particular cpu etc.

So i'm just going to buy the 3570k and leave it stock
