  1. Define significantly.

    In games that can use 8 threads, yes it will improve your FPS. Aren't that many games though.
    In games that don't support more than 4 threads the gains will be in no relation to a 350$ investment. We're talking about 10-12frames tops.
  2. Best answer
    Yes an i7 will improve fps over an i5. In most cases an i5 would need a 400~500mhz advantage to pull even to an i7. Make sure your 100 series has the bios to support the 7700k first. Also know you have to run windows 10 with the 7700k.
