Can I upgrade my CPU to this? Would it be compatible with my current build?


And also, would this be a good upgrade?

I would recommend to update to Zen or Intel i3/5/7 in near future rather than this mainly due to its low single core performance and you will have to get a new Motherboard to upgrade to any including this.
But It will also be a good upgrade in term of performance.

You will NOT be able to upgrade to this CPU without buying a new motherboard. Given that, I would strongly advise against buying the 8320 unless you simply MUST have it. In that case, at least go to microcenter (if in USA) and buy a bundle.

if your gonna ask me about 4.2Ghz or higher if you can stay on lower Vcore. .but you should change your power supply just to make sure an entry level CX700M or of from SeasonSonic or even Cooler Master wouldn't hurt I think

AMD CPU's are good for gaming . .yes i5's are better but if your just gaming..the thing is you should just buy a decent cpu and put the extra money on your graphics card if your just gaming.
