What is your max budget?

Are you only looking to play games like Far Cry at high settings or for future games?

Do you use the computer for anything else i.e. rendering, video playback, etc

Any plans to upgrade in the future and to what extent?

overclocking can give you a noticeable bump in performance for little or no extra cash. But it can have its risks and when things go bad they go real bad. its a personal call but if done right overclocking can save you a lot of cash.

With all the help you have and research that you can do, overclocking is very easy if done right.
