Is the 4670k worth it for gaming? is the performance worth the increase in price plus the price of a cooler?

K means you can overclock, do you want to overclock at some point in the future?

I know that, I'm asking if the overclock is worth the money? or just save money and get the 4670

Overclocking can improve performance, but it isn't necessary.

Case in point, look at my sig. I am playing games with a 4yo quad clocked 1.6-2.8GHz. The games I can attribute poor performance to the CPU I can count on one hand, and even those wouldn't be an issue if I was running a 4yo desktop CPU's clocks. That is, if I was clocked 2.8GHz with some boost above that.

I don't think I would get an overclockable CPU if I was buying a new desktop.That $50-$100 [with additional cooling] is better put to more GPU power primarily [or faster memory, Larger/Caching SSD, a mobo with more features].

I have a 2550k that I bought and paid a slight bit more for so that I could overclock, and just never got around to overclocking it. It's fine as is, for now.

I think if Intel did a study, they would find that 99% of K processors that are sold are never overclocked.

Cpu performance is so rarely the bottleneck of your system, it's a waste of time.

I think the non k version has some features for virtual machines enabled.
