Hello, I'm planning on building my first pc. I probably won't be overclocking, but I'd like to have the option. Is there any good reason to buy the non-k cpu? Does the k version lack anything important? (I've added the 3550, because the 3750 is not as easy to find.) PS. I'll be running linux.

The only difference between a ''K'' and a non K is the possibility of overclocking. Also the price. So if you will not overclock then buy a non K and save a few bucks
the "K" in the CPU just means that it is "unlocked" so you can overclock it MUCH more than the none "K" versions... I would just get the 3750k just to have the option to overclock in the future because you never know when you are going to want it...
