Is it possible to upgrade this IMAC to an Intel Core i7 Processor (2600K 4x3.40GHz) ?

Technically, it is possible.
You can upgrade the processor. I just upgraded mine earlier today.
I took me about 5 hours and voided whatever little warranty I had left.
The iMacs are standard Intel socket 1155.
As long as your TDP and Architecture is the same, they will work in 27".
Since you have the 2009 27" (as do I, just finished upgrading mine!) the absolute quickest you can go is a Core i7 880.
If you want a guide, HardMac has one.
Everymac has more info on the topic.

Should give you all the info you need.
Good luck!
