Windows 7: Need overclockable CPU, what to do?

Need overclockable CPU, what to do?

Hi well I want an overclockable CPU and I was looking to get a i7-2600K later this year, Is it worth upgrading from i5-2400 to i7-2600K? Is Intel going to release any new processors and is it worth rebuilding my rig to get one of them? And should I go for i5-2500K what is the best for the money?

I think it all depends on how strong your upgraditis is :) I would go for the 2600k if I was you, but not the 2500k. That said when it comes down to a budget the 2500k is probably a better buy than the 2600k, but would you notice a difference against the processor that you already have? I doubt it. You may be better advised to wait and see what is coming up. It may also be a good option for you to consider the new AMD bulldozer processors.
