I'm looking to stream and play some games and edit a tiny bit of video, I want an i7 or something that's better than my current i5 4440. It's a LGA 1150 socket and I'm open to getting a new cooler also. I don't want to spend 300$ on an i7 4790k because honesty that's way too much for me, if you have any suggestions, it would be great!

Specs:
GTX 1060 6GB
2x8gb ddr3 1600mhz
1tb hard drive
500 watt power supply
i5 4440
stock intel cooler

I hope you guys answer me and thank you for reading!

I don't really want to change to different ram or a new motherboard just for ryzen

I'm confused. You said that you wanted an I7, but you don't want to spend $300.

The processors for LGA 1150 are getting pretty thin (they have been discontinued for quite a while). There are still some new processor and there are still used ones too.

So what exactly are you asking?

I want to buy used, I don't believe my parents would want to spend 300$ on a processor for my pc, but I also want the best processor that's under 300$ that is better than my i5 4440, I know, it's really specific but that's what I'm working with, thank you for the constant replies btw. :D
 


The link to NEWEGG above does have used processors. Otherwise you do a search on google for specific processors. The next processor own from the i7 4790K would be the I7- 4770K and then I5-4690K.

In terms of non K processors, there is the I7-4790, I7-4770, and I5-4670.

All of those processors would be an improvement over the I5-4440. I would look at the used I7-4790 as a replacement.

This one is $284 new. So it may be a good choice used as well.

Try ebay. Get an i7-4770k/4790k for @$200ish or a Xeon E3-1246v3 3.4GHz for @$160ish.

No point spending cash on even a i5-4690k, all you are doing is upping the clocks a bit, still the same core/thread limitations. For streaming/production of any sort, threads = speed, not clocks.
