I don't think an i7 920 is a good upgrade, especially if you wanted an overhaul. You should get a used 2500K and a cheap 1155 board like someone else recommended.

Then get that! Certainly a much nicer upgrade than the i7 920.

It's about as good as a 2500K which is really good at gaming. It's just that hyperthreading is not normally utilized during gaming therefore i5s and i7s perform roughly the same.
