Anything from Sandy Bridge onwards is going to be OK although the newer the better. Ideally nowadays you really want hyperthreading so 2600k (so you can overclock it), 3770k and 4770k are all prior generation 4c8t models. With the 6 cores now out you will probably find a few people have upgraded and are selling their older CPUs but make sure you can also get the motherboard.
