i am looking to built a new rig. What is better, an I5 that I can overclock or an I7?
I have never overclocked before, is it worth it?
This is a gaming rig.

Unless of course he builds his PC for the exact purpose of gaming, then the higher single core performance of an overclocked I5 would be a better fit, seeing that many games do not support multithreading.

I recomend a I7, i tested some overclock with mi Fx-6300 and it didn´t Worth it , so i recomend the i7 , because when you overclock a processor the durable life decreases, and doing a overclock you will have to buy a better cpu cooler.

I would recommend the overclocked I5 for gaming, multithreading is rarely supported by games. However the I7 would allow for better parallel computing, so if you use programs such as sony vegas, CS5/CS6, CADLAB or most 3D modeling/rendering software it would help. However for a general multitasking/gaming PC an overclocked I5 would be more suited and more powerful, due to the higher single core performance.
