I have an i5-4430 CPU and it is becoming more and more of a bottleneck as it gets older. I am not currently financially in a place where I can justify a full rebuild of my rig, however I can countenance a CPU replacement. I am using a Z87-Plus motherboard with LGA1150 sockets. I have DDR3 1866 ram (16gigs), a GTX 970 GPU. Budget wise, I need to stay under $400, and preferably as far under 400 as possible while still getting a sufficient upgrade.

For context, I do a lot of gaming and some audio editing.

What are your recommendations for CPUs?


Thanks a bunch!
