Arrow building new computer, help

I'm building a new computer and need some advice on a couple of things. Take a look at the parts that I have chosen:

Skyhawk Mid Tower Case w/ 3 Fan slots 1x front 2x back
ASUS P4P800SE motherboard
Intel P4 3.2e Prescott CPU
1 GB Corsair 184 pin PC3200 DDR Ram
nVidia Geforce 6600 256MB DDR AGP
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX (USB)
Maxtor 160GB SATA 7200 RPM 8MB HDD
DVD Drives

Above all, I will be using this for multi-tasking and 3D games. Any oppinions as to how it may perform?

I need suggestions for a good but cheap PSU with a reccomended power rating. I intend to overclock the core processor to at least 3.8 GHZ so, I will need suggestions for case fans and weather it would be wise to mod the side of the case for a 4th fan. I will also need reccomendations for a good heatsink and fan for this particular chip that will do the job, since I have heard this chip runs hot.
