Question This motherboard combo good?

I saw this ad on the tigerdiret website (i have the store right by my house too) And it is exactly what i need. I have the 8800GT superclocked and my amd 3200+ is bottlenecking the crap out of it. How does this combo look, will i be able to get the cpu to 3ghz with a Tuniq cooler too? Juts lemme know what u guys think about the combo. Also, the ram says somthing about vista upgrade, do i need vista to use the ram or somthing? thanks guys
Link to the combo- XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard CPU Bundle - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor 2.40GHz OEM, OCZ 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 Memory (2 x 2048MB) at TigerDirect.com

not bad with the MIR, but honestly, you might get a B3 Revision

I'd just get a p35-ds3l and a q6600 G0 w/ Crucial Ballistix 2gb Kit (especially since you can get it for $40) but if you're desperate for SLi, its something worth looking at

$270 + $70 + $40= $380 If I added correctly (assuming the Ballistix Rebates and Abitg ip35-e rebates come in)
