    Default Intel i7 2600K Processor Question

    Hey there,

    I am in process of sorting out what equipment I want in a new rig that I am building. Will be used as a PC gaming rig btw!!

    The Intel i7 2600k processor seems pretty attractive. However, I've never overclocked anything in my life, so would the ability to do so be a bit OTT for me?

    Or should I instead go for the Intel i7 2600 processor instead, for am I likely to notice any difference in performance between the to? Ie many FPS difference at all?

    Many thanks in advance for any knowledgeable advice given this way!!

    I would go for the k model (2600k) they are very easy to oc and you would see an improvement in games,its worth the bit extra $ to have an unlocked cpu as the locked ones don't oc,you could save some money and go for the 2500k chip,that doesn't support multithreading though
