He's gettin a 955.

You could overclock, but as far as AMD, no.

Intel has faster i7's even at slower clock speeds, but you will pay through the nose for them.

I don't see any use for more than an overclocked 955 for gaming.

To be honest, 3.2GHz is probably fast enough for anything you want to do, especially in a quad-core CPU. You could probably over-clock it to at least 3.5GHz, but I'm really not sure that you would need it.
