Well the i7's HT can add upto 30% extra performance in video editing/3D modeling types of jobs, BUT it cost a disproportionate $100 more :( For gaming the i5 is enough. :)

Between the 2550k and 2500k, i highly suggest u get the 2500K. Both chips OC the same, but if your discrete graphics card fails, u'll be stuck with no display for some time!!!
OC 2500k to 4.1?? Sure you can :) All d best:)
