OK, I have a stock dell mother board model number of 0GDG8Y. I'm currently using a i5-2320 sandy bridge, but I need a little more speed I was wondering if this motherboard is capable of running a i7-2700k ivy bridge without any drawbacks?

Specs

cpu: i5-2320
gpu: 560 ti
psu: 650 watts
ram: 6gigs ddr3

Furpit1:

That MB is an 1155 socket, so the 2700k will drop in, however, you will NOT be able to overclock on that board so a k model is not a worthwhile upgrade IMO especially since the 2320 is already a 3ghz chip. Also, just as an aside, the 2700k is sandy bridge, not ivy bridge.

If you are looking at gaming as the need for speed, I suggest you think about a new motherboard that will allow you access to the bios, then consider what cpu gives you the best bang for the buck. Note that if you go this direction, you will also need a new copy of windows as your current copy is married to your motherboard.

Absolutely. The I7 hyperthreading would really benefit you for both streaming and editing.
