Yup, that looks like it's all compatible; however that RAM looks suspiciously expensive, should be less than $100 IIRC. I'm guessing you're getting two of them?

Why not buy the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Socket AM3 45nm Quad-Core Processor, with 3.2GHz and overclock it to 3.4GHz?

wouldn't it be easier to get the 3.4ghz and overclock it to 4.0ghz, im still a little shaking on the overclocking thing just because im new to this and i fear that if i do something like overclocking i might fry my processor. Is overclocking easy to do?
