Default Overclocking: New Pc Parts!

Hi, I'm new to this forum and computer hardware in general so, if I ask n00bish questions, please bare with me.

I'm planning on buying parts for an upgrade to my old pc... Right now, I'm looking at parts from NewEgg and here's what I've come across:
=====================================
Motherboard:
NF7-S

Processor:
AMD Mobile XP 2500+

UPDATE:
Fan / Heatsink:
TR2TT Fan/Heatsink

Memory:
512MB DDR Kingston Ram
EDIT: Links Fixed!
=====================================
These are the parts that I've been suggested to get... :amazed:
Will these be good to overclock with? I'm aimed to oc them to the 3200+.
From what I've read in the reviews, this processor can his 3200+ speeds fresh out of the box! I would like to know how this is done and if it's possible to achieve these speeds with the stock fan and heatsink?

Does the CPU even come with a fan and heatsink? At NewEgg, it doesn't say processor only, nor does it say that it comes with a fan/heatsink? Which is it?

Thanks in Advance!

Is the CPU retail or OEM

Retail=Heatsink
OEM=just processor

i know the 2500 can easily hit 3200+ but i would make sure you don't overheat it because the stock heatsink is meant for the 2500+. If it overheats pick up a new one.

it is but it fits in the desktops and it has advantages:

-Stock voltage is 1.45
-Tested up to 108C because laptops get hot
-More overclocking potential
-Unlocked multiplier

i have one

Don't worry about it, I have a XP2500+ and I hit XP3200+ speeds without even breaking a sweat - I sometimes do it in a rush, just throw my FSB speed to 200MHz, don't even change anything else; runs a beauty.
