go to your MB website find your board download the newest bios.
extract it to a fat32 format usb flash drive restart the computer with the drive still in.
In the bios look fore tool ezflash or some thing like that you may want to look at your MB manual for the steps

I went on CPU benchmark to compare the 6600 to my current cpu and it said it was superseded by the i5 7600, how much of a difference in preference would this be or would it even work?

you can use a I5-7600 on that MB just update your bios.
you was saying a $200. budget so the 6500 or 7500 non k is your best bet in the price you looking at
