i thought the powersupply was a bit too powrful, but since you're gonna overclock, you'll probably need it.

CPU: the trend nowadays is DEFINITELY GET DUAL-CORE. and since you're gonna be overclocking, you're best bet is the Opteron 165.. very close in price. (a tad cheaper). if you're gonna be stubborn and stick with the 4000+, then get the sand diego, not the clawhammer.. san diego is also cheaper!!

ram: seems so expensive.. i see the timings are really tight.. i guess if you know that these will overclock really well then i guess its worth it.. or else just get faster clocked ram..(but with that you get looser timing.. so ya.. w/e!)

video card: the x850xt is good, but the 7600gt is priced very close.. check otu some benchmarks and see if the 7600gt is better, most likely it is.

mobo: donno why you picked that one.. but if you're gonna overclock, have a look at the dfi line.. (sorry i donno which ones in specific)

ya thats 2 cores in 1 cpu! excellent for multitasking! even good for gaming because you can set a lot of the background junk to run on one cpu, and w/e game you're playing solely on the other core. the 3800+ is great value, but since you say you're gonna overclock, the opteron165 is clocked a bit slower, but has double the l2 cache. ppl have had good luck in overclocking it. stock is 1.8 ghz.. but i'm sure you will get AT LEAST 2.2ghz (thats 2 cores runnin at 2.2ghz)

you might as well get the 7900gt if you can find one since they're around the same price as the 7800gt.

Totally get the Opteron 165, it will OC wayyyy better than the AMD 4000. plus, it's dual core. Don't get that ATI card, get a 6800 gs for around that price, or pay a bit more for the 7600. PSU is too expensive, get an antec truepower 2 550 watt one
