Just to add some options you can also consider non "k" version i5. You won't be able to push it far in OC terms but it will be in the middle of the best i3 and the i5 k version. For gaming it is still best to put ur $$ on videocard so unless your doing benchmarks you will see very little gain in OC your cpu. With regard to VMs 4 cores, i5, will be better than 4 threads, i3, for sure and again OC will not provide huge benefits on VM set ups. So my bet would is on i5 non k version IF your not benchmarking OC cpu. Hope that helps.
