First and for most I am completely comfortable and experienced with overclocking, my PC is used for gaming-
I was thinking of updating my PC and was wondering what I should get first, a new Video card or CPU+MOBO

What I currently have -
Proc- 955 Deneb
Mobo- MSI MS-7578
8 gigs G-skill Ram
Video- GTX 460 SLi

I was wondering if I should get + a 2500k ( I know the ivy bridge is out, but am still thinking I like the 2500k more as I will be overclocking ) and Keep my SLi for now and upgrade my Video card later - or should I get a new Video card now, was thinking a 670, and get the mobo+proc later.

What is your budget?

I would suggest the mobo/cpu path first. You will get a leap in performance and you can always add a new GPU later. SLI'd 460s will still do well, especially in an i5-2500k rig.

I wanted to stay around $400-450 The mobo+cpu with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler with shipping and tax's included is around 426 at newegg. If anyone has suggestions on cheaper or better for the money, I am not really biased on where to buy it at as long as the source is reputable, nor am I bias on brand- at least for the most part.
