Depending on what the main use of the computer will be an i7 CPU could be massive overkill and will certainly be expensive, an example of this, the least expensive i7 CPU that I could find that has the same amount of cores and is the same speed as yours costs $201.80, is dated technology being Sandy Bridge and does not support the speed of your new Ram Intel Core i7-2600S full specs here great CPU back in 2012 but not by today's standards or going forwards.

 

i7 CPU specs normally required for such usage as games programming, professional video rendering, 3D modelling and CAD.

 

Let us know the intended use and we will go from there  :thumbsup:

Nothing that an i5 CPU cant handle so it really is just a case of what you decide upon, take a look at the i7 prices here to see if it helps you any.

 

Be going offline shortly so no rush as I wont be around until after work tomorrow 7pm UK time.

Quick Question?

I have available to me a free brand-new ASUS P9X79 DELUXE Motherboard

https://www.asus.com...s/P9X79_DELUXE/

Would this be a 1156 socket type board that would be compatible with my present i7 CPU?
The board can handle up to 16GB of memory and might be an excellent alternative to purchasing
a whole new system.

The board is the LGA 2011 socket type and therefore not compatible with your CPU I`m afraid  :(
