    Yes, a certain cpu fits in a certain cpu socket.

    i7 3770k = socket 1155 Z77 Motherboard
    i5 4670k = socket 1150 Z87 Z97 Motherboard

    Z77

    There's no reason not to get one of the new Haswell refresh CPU's, and for gaming, go with the i5-4690K and grab a decent cooler. Pair that with a good Asus Z97 motherboard and you are good to go.
