I Have a computer with
Motherboard: Intel DH61WW (Socket LGA 1155)
Processor: Core i3 @ 3.1 GHz

And I Want to upgrade to
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GT 640 (Dual Slot)

you coyld upgrade both but the "K" will be of no use because your mobo doesnt support overclocking in which the K stands for. the graphics card is not an issue.

the K means that the processor has an unlocked multiplier that makes it overclockable. (i.e. 3.4ghz-4.5ghz)

Then what could my maximum clock rate be with the core i5 processor?

if you will put the i5-3570k in your current motherboard, you can only have a max of 3.6ghz because its the turbo boost technology of i5, you cannot go further because you need a Z77 motherboard to utilize the overclocking capabilities of the i5 3570k

Actually with the turbo boost it would be 3.8GHz if i'm not mistaken you can have a look at this link http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz
