Im thinking of swapping out my 930, for either a 950, 960, or just buying a used 930, because the one i currently have in my system is 6 years old and holy man, i get fps lag on games that shouldn't lag, and once i change the graphics detail i get the same fps. anyways, would it work to just do a cpu swap without any re-installing of drivers or components?

Get the i7-4790k. It pwns all CPUs out there in gaming and is a better value than the six-core variants. I'm planning on upgrading to the 4790k myself. :)

yes it would bottleneck slightly, if your going to upgrade consider 3rd gen i5(if you haven't bought the Mobo yet) or you could wait for 4th gen intel CPUs'

yes its great, but this cpu is kinda "not powerful" compared to others atleast. I'd still recomend 3rd gen i5 or better for a "serous gaming rig" this cpu is only about 2% faster than mine
