Hey, I have got an Intel core I5-3570K, Asrock z77-pro4 motherboard, Cooler Master extreme power plus 500w PSU and a Cooler Master Hyper-TX3 CPU Cooler.

Can anyone give a rough idea of How much I would be able to overclock my Processor


I am asking this because this motherboard has got a 4+2 phase power design, i thnk which may limit the OC.

Yes, the extreme power plus 500w.

If this is not sufficient then which one should i get for upto 4k.

and i am planning to get a graphics card later; which one should i go for under9k

You can go for Corsair CX500W and add the rest to your GPU budget. Also TX3 is a basic cooler. Don't expect to overclock using that.

Add another 200/- with your existing budget and get Corsair GS600 @4.2K, which is a lot better than CX500 and also having more wattage & effeciency.

UNPREDICTABLE
4+ ghz is surely achieveable with your current hardware

and you can use hd7770 without changing your psu

however. you CPU can be clocked to 8.0 GHZ as someone did recently which is like "UNBELIEVABLE" but yeah he did it regardless of hardware he used to achieve such clock.
but as per the specs you have.. you can clock it to a maximum extent of 4.0 - 4.5 ghz in my opinion.

what a noobish post .. 8Ghz is possible only when using sub zero cooling like Ln2, Liquid helium etc. with some custom made pot, a great mobo, some insulation stuff,, lots f knowledge and patience - it can't be be achieved on just any hardware.

No its not only noobish but the information is completely wrong. Ivybridge has been overclocked only till 7.15Ghz with LN2 which is the record for now. As for above 8Ghz that has been achieved only by Bulldozer and Pentium 4 and has been done more than a year ago.
