Does the website not support I5-7400 anymore? I don't see the option to choose it when seeing if your rig can run a game.

Yes! But I'd get the 7500 for the higher clock speeds, it's worth it and will benefit in the long run.

For 1080p 60 Hz, overkill
For 1440p 60 Hz, perfect match
For 1080p+ 120 Hz +, not so much, better look into a more powerful one (R5 1600 would suffice for relatively the same budget)

Performance-wise, it is a good upgrade if you are still using i5 2XXX cpu, any other more recent i5 gen will get you roughly the same performance (or even better)

If you plan to stay on a 1080p / 60 Hz monitor, no point whatsoever to change the CPU, probably in the next 3 years+. Now, for 120+ Hz, it will definitely bottleneck (it won't matter what expensive / powerful GPU you got)
