I am new to PC. I just bought this PC from my friend and I want to upgrade my CPU. If I want to upgrade it to i7 7700/8700, do I need to buy another mobo? Also, are they compatible?
Thank you!
 
You can upgrade to a maximum of 7700k with that motherboard. Your motherboard will not allow for overclocking however. If you want to overclock, you will want a z270 series motherboard. If you want an 8000 series CPU you will need a 300 series motherboard.
