Default Help me pick out some parts

I've been out of the PC gaming world for a little while and want to get back in but don't know what to get.. I have about $800-850 (maybe 870 max) AFTER tax and shipping. I need all the insides and the case but no OS, monitor, mouse or anything like that. I want a Core 2 Duo and wish to overclock it and I don't want to spend too much on the graphics card maybe $200 max since that's going to be the first thing I upgrade (don't need DX10 either since I'll upgrade it fairly soon). I just want a good core (cpu/mobo/ram etc.) I'm thinking an E4300 would be good? or would stepping up to an E6420 be worth it? I don't want an E6320 since it'll be harded on the other components though when I overclock. Don't really know about anything else so can anyone maybe give me a list of parts that fit in the budget? I prefer Newegg but I'll buy off others if it's cheaper.
