It's a good CPU for the money, as long as you OC it good

He's not going to be overclocking it on that motherboard lol.

 

Even then if you can get it cheap enough, say $120, it's a pretty nice upgrade.


if you have to insist you think for yourself, i'm not going to believe you.

You cant overclock those cpu's on that board.

Any 2nd or 3rd gen i5 or i7 would be a nice performance bump for you though, especially if you can find it cheap. (like under $150)


When in doubt, re-format.

Nothing will overclock on a H61 board. Still, both of those CPUs are huge improvement over you i3 ;)

Can you game on an 8-year-old i7? Is the 4-year-old GTX 660 still relevant? Upgrading the HP Pro 3500

Yes, an i7 2700k would be a pretty big improvement over an i3 3220. However in order to overclock the 2700k you're going to need a Z series board. I'm also unsure if your chosen motherboard supports the same socket as the 2700k, so make sure you double check that.

 

Honestly though i would just recommend a platform upgrade if you can afford it. upgrade to Skylake or Kaby Lake. Doesn't make a lot of sense to get old hardware like teh 2700k unless you're getting a great deal on it.

Well, if you can get one of those processors cheap it could be good. But i think it wouldnt help too much because of your video card. I would suggest something like a i3-6300 or i5-6400 (of course that means buying a 1151 socket mobo). (Not acctually sure if cpu upgrade is needed). something like an rx 460 4gb or rx 470 4gb would probably be good as a video card upgrade. OC on that Mobo i am not sure about.

I know lol, I was saying that it would be kind of a waste unless you were to OC it, which he can't even do

Overall though, I would highly recommend doing the upgrade. Even something like a 3550 would be great, not just for gaming, but overall. If you upgrade the CPU, that GTX 660 is going to be what holds you back.

Then it could be viable to buy the 2600k, to breathe a last breath of life into your pc before you buy a completely new one.
