"what do I need to install intel core i7?"
A different motherboard.

A motherboard is compatible with either Intel or AMD CPUs, but not both. As it has an AMD CPU we know it is the latter and is not compatible with the i7 or any other Intel CPU.

Be aware that installing any Apple OS on non Apple hardware is a violation of Apple's EULA. If you want to run Apple OS all I can suggest is to buy an Apple computer.

✔ Best Answer
Sorry, your motherboard is designed for an AMD processor and cannot use an Intel processor. It would be easier to get a new computer. You would have to change the motherboard (assuming desktop tower system), processor, memory, and purchase a complete new copy of Windows if you still wanted to use windows because your OEM version is tied to your motherboard and will not be usable otherwise. Just to begin with, without a complete hardware list, I cannot be sure what else you may need. It would be cheaper to purchase a new machine or build one from scratch.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
