Hello,
I'm going to to build myself a new PC, generally for gaming (not going to use any video editing, etc.). Was out of this area for a while, so I want your opinion and some advices about my plan.
I dont really understand whether I need the possibility to overclock (going to play MMORPs, FPS and co-op games liek NBA2k mostly), but maybe it will come in handy in the future? How long would the build without overcloking be decent enough for?

The build im thinking of is:
CPU - intel Core i5-3570 / i5-3570k
Mobo: Asrock H77 pro4 / Asrock Z77 extreme4
GPU: GTX 660 ti. not sure which one is best for my needs: gigabyte 660 ti windforce or zotac 660 ti AMP.
PSU: 600W corsair gs.
Hard drives: 128gb SSD and 1TB regular
Corsair vengeance 2*4GB of Ram 1600Mhz

The budget is flexible, I just dont want an unneccessary overkill :) 
Thank YOu in advance!

It's already overkill for what you plan to do.

I'm no expert but i believe this is a good build. I think if you are gaming at 1920*1080 res then you won't need to overclock. You can get a 23 " or 24" IPS monitor and a good case from a good brand like corsair or antec.

This is already pretty overkill. I have a build that is a bit better, and those games run soooo soooo easy max settings absolutely zero lag, 1080p resolution 60+ fps. So it's already good enough, don't have to worry about it not being good enough lol. =)
