I7 3770k $130ish
I7 3770 $70ish
Xeon E3-1240v2 $60ish
Xeon E3-1270v2 $80ish

Do not opt for i7-3770 S or i7-3770 T. They are eco models that run in low 2GHz range not standard 3.4GHz + range.

Best value is E3-1270v2, same clock speeds as the i7-3770K, no need for OC ability as your board doesn't OC. But the K has higher clock speed than non-k stock i7-3770.

Ok but will it be compatible with my motherboard, gpu and ddr3 ram ?
That's what a CPU Support List is. It tells you what CPUs are compatible with your motherboard. Your graphics card and RAM don't care what processor is installed as long as it's compatible with your motherboard.

Also what is a normal price for a used I7-3770 so i know that im looking at the right thing ?:)
Ebay Completed Items - Intel Core I7-3770
They seem to be averaging between $60 and $80.
