Go for the X2 3600+ Brisbane. It's only $74, and can overclock the same as those other two.

For the motherboards, I'd probably go for the EVGA one. But if you want to save money, get the BIOSTAR TForce 550. It's only, I think $69.99.

For the memory I suggest getting G. Skill. They are highly recommended for overclocking.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
or
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

The power supply is too much for your system. Get a HIPER 580W or a Corsair 620W.

I wouldnt suggest a C2D as the AMD's are good for the money right now. Do NOT get XMS2 2

Instead everyone will agree to get G.skill HK's or HZ's instead

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
OR
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Instead of that PSU get a Corsair HX620 as they are better for about the same money.

Um...the Corsair 620HX is one of the most highly recommended PSU's out there. It is much more stable than the OCZ gamestream...
