Is this a home built or OEM big box computer?

What are you doing with this computer?

What motherboard does your computer have and what version of BIOS?

Really though you have an I7 socket 1156 CPU. The I7 is pretty much the top of the line desktop CPU. You really aren't going to able to upgrade. You may be able to go up to an I7 870 or 880 but it is really not worth it. You are not going to see a real performance increase by going from one I7 to another I7 of the same generation. The point is your computer is old and you would be better off getting a new computer if you want to really see a change in performance.

Need a bit more info on what problems you are having with your system. Question is a bit too vague.

If you are having memory problems run memtest 86+.

download and burn a bootable memtest86+ disk and run it all night and see if it finds errors. If so, you need new RAM. If not, it could be CPU or MB.
