Bought one of these beauties on amazon, So far ive given it 16gb ram, and a msi 1050ti 4gt lp. it has an I5-2400, #1 would it be worth it swap in an i7-2600, and if so, does anything need changing? #2 all of the reviews ive read say that the 240w psu handles it, but should i upgrade, and to what? Thank you!

Both processors are 95w, so it would use the same cooler, fans and power supply. But the benchmark differences are small, and in my experience, they need to be 50% or better to make a noticable difference. If you haven't done so, installing a 250 GB (or larger) SSD would make a bigger difference.
