Windows 7: Possible new CPU for my PC.

Possible new CPU for my PC.

Hi everyone. Given the specs I have listed for my PC, I was wondering if upgrading from my current i5 2500k to a i7 2700k would make sense. I noticed on Newegg that the prices of the 2700k have come down a bit, so I am considering it. Thanks in advance for any input.

Can you strech as far as 3770k, on ebuyer it as a 15 diffrence, it will be worth it as the 2600k is old generation

Additional note: I plan to upgrade my CPU cooler, so if I am going to do that, it would be a good time to install a new CPU as well.

After looking at the specs for my Asus P8P7 Deluxe motherboard, it will support the 3770k, but I would have to flash my system bios as well. Doing that makes me kind of nervous, as I would hate to screw my PC up. Any input on that procedure would be welcome as well.

If I went with the 2700k I would be fine as is, I believe.

Just finished flashing system bios to the latest revision. The Asus flash utility made it a breeze. I also made a backup of the old bios, which I can restore if I start having issues with the new revision.
