If you are going to overclock Sandy Bridge, you're going to have to purchase the ~ $550 2600K model. The clock generator will be integrated onto the CPU core and will not budge much above the stock 200Mhz. The reason for this is that the PCIe bus is linked to this clock generator and it does not tolerate much in the way of a frequency increase.

On locked Sandy Bridge cores, you will only be able to adjust the multiplier as high as the turbo boost allows. This will severely limit your ability to purchase a $100 processor and get 90% of the performance of a $1000 processor.

There aren't really any new models slated for the LGA1366 platform. You'll get an i7 990X, and it will end there. The LGA2011 platform will take over next spring. It will offer 6/8 core processors, quad channel DDR3, and an integrated PCIe 3.0 bus. For overclocking and multi-gpu configurations, this is the platform to replace LGA1366.
