No, you cannot upgrade from a i7-2600 to a i7-6700.

Even if they were socket compatible, they would not be bios and chipset compatible.

 

An upgrade processor must be socket, bios, and chipset compatible.   To determine what you can upgrade to, contact the motherboard manufacturer and ask them what processors are supported by their bios.  Then, you can select from those.

Thanks for explaining to change the subject did i hear SSD's speed up your computer?  would a SSD system and external SSD speed it up more?

SSDs provide better performance than a HDD.

Ok thanks that confirms what i heard. An external SSD would be as good as a internal SSD?

That depends on how the external SSD is connected.
