I chucked in the aftermarket HSF because it works really, really well and it's quiet as a whisper.
The Mobo isn't very good for overclocking yeah, I just figured he'd be putting a small OC on not going for any records/benchmarks. If you are though, Roark's right get a different mobo. If you're only looking to put a few hundred Mhz extra on there, then it'll do fine IMO.
Ram? Yeah it's cheap as chips these days, grab moar if you want it! No reason not to I guess
just make sure you've got enough clearance with the HSF if you're gonna be putting ram modules in the slot closest to the cpu.
