As more advance (faster) cpus are released, price of older cpus will
fall drastically.  So, it does pays to overclock your cpu, as long as
your system remain stable (nothing is more valuble, than your data).  
Because in 2 years, your cpu will be practically worthless.
So, why not squeeze he last drop of power from it as soon as possible,
and get your money's worth ?
