about the ram, i dunno...
there is somone on here (i cant remember who) whose super talent is kicking the crap out of the best oc i can get on my HZ's.
but, then again, i used to get overclocks on my xms2 that kicked the crap out of peoples best clocks on their HZ's...

Supertalent ram is fantastic. I've seen a lot of high overclocks with them on hard forum.

I've been a fan of Supertalent, which is why I was wondering how much better another brand could be for $40 more...

yeah i have no beefs against supertalent, it's just that the OCZ ram was the cheapest good ram in a 1066 pack (1066 for the new mobo).

ok first off i suggest the scythe ninja for a heatsink
Newegg.com - Scythe SCNJ-1100P 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - Retail

and i wouldnt suggest getting windows xp hme i suggest Microsoft Windows XP Profesional

and one thing umm if your thinking about getting more than 3gigs. of ram buy windows xp 64 bit edition because after 3 gigs. of ram your pc will start to slow down from (get this the funny part) to much ram to process so if your going higher than 3 gigs.

my thoughts:

E6420 I'd replace with the 6320 to save money and for overclocking reasons. I'd go with the Gskill ddr2 800 ram for price/performance reasons, that ram will overclock very well too.

Cooler master psu's aren't as high quality as the more expensive original psu you listed.

personally I'd find the extra ram on the 8800 good for future proofing and higher resolution, more aa & af in games.

Personally I'd buy an oem copy of vista home premium over xp these days, due to the optimizations included for dual core and 64 bit processors, you have a DX 10 video card and won't be able to use DX 10 in xp, also vista has more advanced memory management and better security.
