Default My build in progress

Hi guys, my build is in progress, waiting for the first few bits to be delivered. The purpose for my comp is gamming with overclocking. I have chose, as you will see a "cheaper" video card as im going to invest heavily in a second gen dx10 card whenever they may be so just wanted something to do me for the time being. All the other parts ive tried to pick for overclocking, things im not too hot on picking are PSU's and the memory, really unsure as to whats best for the mobo, but all advice much appreciated. Also i wanted any advice on whether i need more cooling than what i have for a moderate overclock. Thanks in advance

Looks like a good machine. But I think you should wait a few weeks for the DX10 graphic cards.

EDIT: Oh I see you already ordered...still a good gaming machine.
