Hi -

Please forgive the simplicity of the question - Back in 2011 i had my pc custom built. Its starting to show its age and wanted to work out whether its worth updating the processor or whether i have to change motherboard as well - I have an Intel Core i7 2600 CPU 3.4GHz - Mobo is an MSI MS-7672 -
I am struggling to find out what's the best processor i could upgrade to on it. Could someone offer some tips?

Thanks
D
