I'm also still running the Pentium d and want to build a decent gaming rig.
If you want to get into overclocking and have a nice chip, the i5-2500k is exactly what you should get. Dont get the i7-2600k unless you plan on using the hyperthreading it has.
Most people on here will agree the i5-2500k is what you will want.
If you want to build a decent gaming rig, Get the i5-2500k, a decent-good mobo, A good GPU probably around a GTX 460 depending on monitor res/amount of them, and good cooling for the overclocking. You might also want to get at least a mid-tower case so that you have at least some room in it and allow some good ventilation in it.
