How to upgrade a CPU

Hey!
So a little background on my pc first...
Intel core 1700 CPU(sounds rigt, can verify this).
Have been playing Battlefront, no issues.

I do not meet minimum BF2 requirements. But I have no issues. However, I am contemplating BFV, (in addition to BF2, not leaving) but do not want to do anything if it will not work... That said, I want to upgrade my CPU, and I was wondering if I could do this online through intel or not. I realise this is not tech support, but I figure people have experience. Also feel free to tell me if I am wasting my time, but did not want to look into it too much only to not be able to get it. The max I want to spend upgrading is $20, so no new pc.

    First and foremost, Make 100% Sure whatever CPU you want to upgrade to matches the Socket type for the Mobo. For example, If You had an I-5 4690k (Socket 1150), you would be able to upgrade to an I-7 4790k (Also Socket 1150). However, you cannot upgrade the CPU if it doesn't match the mother board socket type. So basically, if you upgrade, make sure it matches the socket type, because if it doesn't, you will then most likely have to buy a motherboard to match the socket type of your new upgrade, and in some extreme cases, if the gen is older from what you're upgrading from, also new Ram as well (DDR3 - DDR4).

    Also upgrading a CPU isn't about updating it software wise, if you want to upgrade it, it's gonna be costly. Just letting you know.
