For comparison's sake, 3DM11:

i7 920 oc @ 3.6 = P6459
2500K@ stock = 6281
2500K@ 4.0 = 6495
2500K @ 4.5 = 6597
2500K @ 4.8 = 6641

With a 580. I got a lot more points out of overclocking the video card, but then that is (primarily but not only) a vid card benchmark

2500K @ 4.8, vid card core to 850 = 6986. You'd be better off upgrading your vid card, if your primary use is gaming.
