Windows 7: plan to upgrade and could use some help with components

plan to upgrade and could use some help with components

I would like to upgrade my intel i5 4670k with this Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Refresh Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K - Newegg.com - Newegg.com but, not sure if it would be compatible with my Asus Z87A motherboard. I know they have the same socket but was wondering if I would get the full benefits of the 4790k or not such as the hyper threading etc. I plan to upgrade to an Antec 1200 case but could also use some advice on a PCIE 3 graphics card to replace my PCIE 2 His 4850 card with about a $300.00 price limit. Also, will my GSKILL Sniper memory be compatible with the new processor? Thanks for all help!

Yes, that board will support the new cpu, you will need to update the bios for the new gen cpu. It will also work with a PCIE 3 GPU. The ram should be fine

I am still reading around, and seeing conflicting info on if it will support the new CPU. I would contact ASUS to verify that the have a BIOS that will support it.

I have been updating and have the latest bios as of this time but, I will make sure they are compatible before I purchase. Thanks!
