Overclocking is setting the processor to a fastor speed that the factory setting. Example a 2500k 3.3GHz stock overclocked to 4.5GHz.

What SLI or Crossfire is, is having two to four graphics cards connected to work together and give you more performance but you also have to have a motherboard that supports that.

Thanks, I think I wan't to get a 2500k from what I've been looking at, is there any harm with overclocking?

I would most likely not need SLI or Crossfire but I'm not sure.
