Even if they were socket compatible, you still have to make sure they are chipset compatible, and most important is that the i7-4790K is compatible with the Gigabyte BIOS.

Well, since it can't be upgraded ...

Is the processor capable of playing games with high quality.

What is the maximum screen card it supports

The processor is a 3.4ghz processor. Not the latest, but still good (in my opinion).

You can look at the specs here and decide:

According to what I searched on the Internet, the processor is old and not suitable for final play

It would all be relative to the games you intend to play.

 

However, it is an old processor. Upgrading to a new(er) system that is supported on Windows 10 would be a good thing!
