Extra cost for OC worth it?

Hey guys,

I'm creating a list for a Mini-itx build that's on a budget. Z77 mini-itx boards are quite pricey and with the added cost of an i5 3570k it'll be at least $120US extra over an H77 motherboard and a 3470(Note I'm fron New Zealand so things are a little pricier). Do you think the cost is worth it for the OC potential? The most intensive uses will be Photoshop and gaming.

Well since the i5 3570k is clocked at 3.4GHz, i don't think you need to overclock it... It should run games very good on 1080p. And Photoshop doesn't even represent a threat to the i5.

overprice to SSD and more size RAM will be good
