Is Intel Core i7 Processor i7-970 3.20GHz 12MB LGA1366 CPU BX80613I7970 Fully unlocked core allows for overclocking?

or its better to get Intel Core i7-990X Processor Extreme Edition?

Unless you do a lot of video rendering, 3D modelling and/or animation or other CPU-Intensive task (games are not CPU-Intensive compared to the tasks listed), there's really no need for a i7 970.

As Shay said, a 2600K is a much better buy if your main goal is gaming.

Quad Core Sandy Bridge is on par with Six-core Westmeres, you'll not notice much difference.Sandy Bridge is the way to go for overclocking.
