All processors with the "K" designation at the end have unlocked multipliers and overclock higher.

If you're not planning on overclocking, get the 4570. Not the 4670, the 4570. The K at the end of the 4670k means that the multiplier is unlocked. The multiplier multiplies the base clock which adds up to the CPU's frequency (3400MHz in the 4670k's case). The reason some people want it unlocked is for overclocking. By increasing the multiplier, you get a higher frequency. A good motherboard would be this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That particular Cpu generally isn't a good one to get. You can save quite a bit of money on a different chip, and you'll never notice a difference. For example, the 4670 is 214.99, while the 4570 is 189.99. Save the 25 dollars and just buy the 4570. If you want the extra 200mhz, then just spend the extra 5 dollars and buy the 4670k over the plain 4670.

It is only a few percent slower (unnoticeable difference in gaming) and it is $25 cheaper than the 4670.
