I've just got my i7 2600k running at 4.5GHz @ 1.32v.
While overclocking I've been using 10 runs of Intel Burn Test for stress testing. Is this enough to be considered stable or do i need to run the prime 95 tests too?
An Intel build could also be an option.

I've been asked to build a PC for my friend. He has a £650 budget which needs to also include a monitor, mouse & keyboard and a copy of Windows.
The primary use of this PC will be gaming, currently the games he plays are on emulators...
