Default Some advice please - mobo

Just wondering if a Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5 GHz Quad-Core LGA 1155 will work in my GA-P67-DS3-B3 mobo? I currently have an i5 2500k 1155 in it.

Link to my mobo if it's any use GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-P67-DS3-B3 (rev. 1.0)

thanks.

According to the CPU Support List on that page, yes.

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Socket 1155 - Intel P67 - GA-P67-DS3-B3 (rev. 1.0)

Requires you to be on at least BIOS v F5...so make sure you're updated on your BIOS.

Thanks.

Think it would use significant power? I have a cx 500 which is just about good enough for my set up now.

The i7 has a TDP of 77W, and your i5 has a TDP of 95W...so it uses less power.

Listed under TDP:
ARK | Intel® Coreā„¢ i5-2500K Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.70 GHz)
ARK | Intel® Coreā„¢ i7-3770K Processor (8M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz)

Hope there's a good reason why you're making that small jump.

2500k to say a 4960k, sure. That's a 'decent' jump. 2500k to 3770k not so much unless you absolutely need HT or you're getting the CPU dirt cheap. Like 50 bucks.

This is second best to the 4960k:
Amazon.com: Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz) (BX80646I74790K): Computers & Accessories

if you want to get it used I would do so for 319.00 if not just stick with the 2500k like mguire mentioned.
Oh yeah 4960k price tag isn't worth it, trust me on that. :/

Trouble is I'd have to buy a new mobo if I got anything better than 3770k. Starts getting expensive after that!

To be sure of it give me the motherboard name and model number and we'll check to be sure.

Otherwise here is your non expensive board.
GIGABYTE GA-H81M-HD2 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

You could go ahead and get your new cpu, next you save up 65.00 bucks this month and make the mobo purchase next month.

For both items it'll be atleast 310 bucks.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...condition=used
Get that used for 249.00 bucks.
