Question e6300 overclocking motherboard and ram

MOBO- GIGABYTE GA-8I945GZME-RH Socket T (LGA 775)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128322

VIDEOCARD- eVGA 256-P2-N624-AR GeForce 7900GS 256MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130056

PROCCESSOR- C2D E6300
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115005

MEMORY- I havent chosen yet but i want at least 2gb

I want to get new mobo, videocard, ram, and proccessor. i want to overclock the e6300 like there is no tomorrow. but i'm not sure if the motherboard is good enough. Can anyone suggest a good motherboard and ram for overclocking? i want everything to cost about $500 wo/ shipping and taxes. i already have a freezer 7 pro to cool the c2d. but i'm not sure if buying 2gb of ram along with the mobo vidcard and proc will be under 500$. i am not in a rush to build this. it will be definetly after Christmas and new years. i am also thinking whether i should wait for more DX10 cards to come out, i already know that it will be a loooooong wait.

Can anyone help me with this? thanks in advance.

" i want to overclock the e6300 like there is no tomorrow"

And that IS THE BEST motherboard for OCing a C2D

" i am not in a rush to build this"
Also Your not in a rush as I underStand.

If you really want to "OC IT LIKE NO TOMMOROW" than use all the time you say you can wait and buy the best there is.

The only reasons why I suggested the AUS P5B E and then the Gigabyte DS3 is because across the forums I visit those are the two most commonly reccomended for a Overclocking C2D setup.

ok i might go with the Gigabyte DS3 motherboard. if i get the motherboard i might not be able to afford 2gb of ram. so maybe i could get 1gb instead.

so are there any reccomendations for nice overclocking ram. i would prefer 1x1gb. as opposed to 2x512.

Well what are you going to use the computer for? You will need the 2gb of ram to fully use the OCed for games and such. You probably wont need the extra gig if youre just using it for folding or something like that.
