I see that your getting thermal Paste, but why no after market heatsink. The thermal Paste is only well worth it in conjunction with an aftermarket Heatsink.

At a Glance everything looks good. Please learn to use the forum Link option so we do not have to click each link to see the product.
As for the video card Im thinking either a x1900xt or a 7800GTX but I don't really know prices or the product list of tigerdirect off the top of my head.... Soo Im just guessing.

For the motherboard there are some Better Boards for Overclocking a C2D, Asus I believe But Ill have to find the Exact Model. Hopefully someone else will post it before long.

i would get a evga 7600gt and upgrade to a 8800gts for christmas with the step up program.

im guessing you will want to oc...and the ram you picked out would give you an ok oc, but the 667fsb will limit your overclock on the e6600.
can you get these ocz 2x1gb 800mhz ?

but if you don't want ot pay the extra money, the ocz ram you picked out may be able to pull 800mhz...MAY....i have no experince with ocz's ram.

The Best ones are the XP-90 or the XP-120. However, if you want something smaller and cheaper, just find a pure Copper one and replace the Stock fan on it with something more powerfull.

I didn't want to buy either the XP90 or 120 so I Bought This one and slapped some AS5 on it and replaced the stock fan with a tornado. With the stock Heatsink I loaded @ 55C with the replacement setup I load @ 44C @ 2.70 Ghz.
