hey e peen, care to give me a link to a exact one?

Yes, i will be overclocking, but only a normal oc to 4.5 nothing to extreme, which reminds me to get a cooler, which cooler is a good one to?

Yes this is for gaming, i know for sure im being bottlenecked becuase my gpu is at 50% while my 2 cores are at 100% in rage. and i do not live next to a microcenter,.

Why ?? He clearly states he wants a 2500k. Maybe the best bang for buck gaming CPU available. To OP: I have the p8p67 pro and its very solid. A hyper 212+ will get you to 4.5ghz for sure and is a super value. Silver arrow or anything from noctua if you want to spend a bit more. There's an Nh-d14 in the FS section for 65$ right now.

It will bottleneck future cards. And unless you are getting the i3 1156 CPUs, then you can't overclock. i5 2500k is more future proof.

he might be concerned about your gpu not performing. the i5 will be a waste if you don't upgrade the gpu.

might, but it is already clocked highly enough and has turbo. And there is Ivy Bridge down the road for the same platform... and like the previous poster said his GPU is not strong enough to use all that power anyway...
