Arrow FINAL decision on new parts!

How does this look. Im 17, on a budget. I want to OC to 3ghz, play crysis, and new games that come out. Will this get the job done? I already have an 8800GT SC 512mb, case, and ultra xfinity 600w psu, dual 12vrails. Heres the new stuff to replace my KN8 SLI, 2gb DDR ram, and amd 3200+ (2ghz LOL)

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor - OEM
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail

i think this pc will be kickbutt for another year or 2
