Default Re: which motherboard do i get?

so, here is the final setup i think i will go with. I think ill just get the q6600 now. is the 45nm that big of a dirfference? it will probably be like 400$ too and i dont have that kind of money. the q6600 will let me game at max for another year or 2.... right? here is the final setup (gotta find everything again, in graphic arts class at school, im done with my project so im bored as ****, yay tech forums!) FINAL SETUP: (all comments and sudgestions welcome)
Newegg.com - ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail Will this motherboard let me overclock to 3ghz no problem?
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor - OEM
this ram wont give me problems when OCing will it?
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail
will i be able to get the q6600 to alteast 3ghz with this setup? will i be able to run games on max for a while? (i think ill buy another 8800gtSC later)
will everything be good for a long time?
