Default need some help....

well im in the middle of buying my new computer.and i need a little bit of help deciding what to get. ok i have this mother board
and i was thinking of getting this processor
i saw some reviews of people overclocking it to 2.8GHZ i was thinking of doing the same but i have NO experince at all. So here is my QUESTION.....should i buy the venice processor and try to learn how to overclock or try to find a new processor thats faster for the same price.

any help will be appreciated

also if anyone can find a 160GB Harddrive for less that 52.00 let me know!

also also i need some ram for my computer i would like 1Gb 2x512MB
for less than 100.00 and is compatible with my mobo

this may be stupid but will i have to buy windows if im buying all new parts from newegg?

If you plan on using this computer for testing/learning purposes i would say those are good choice's. However, if you plan to use this as your main computer...i would advise that you just go with a faster processor. OCing can make the computer very unstable or even unusable. You may find some nice deals for a HD on
