Default My Future Rig

I've posted on here before about this rig, but I didn't get much response.

So, should I get this? Any suggestions or changes to my list would be much appreciated

CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13 GHz 26400

Mobo: Intel G965 LGA775 FSB1066MHz 4DDR2

Memory: Corsair 1GB PC2-5300 DDR2 667 MHz

Harddrive: Seagate 320GB SATA 3G HDD 7200RPM 16MB

Disk Drive: AOpen DVDRW

OS: Windows XP Media Center '05 w/ Vista upgrade coup.

Case: Cooler Master Centurion 5

GPU: BGF GeForce 7900 GS 256MB PCI-E

PSU: Haven't decided yet, probably an Antec or something

That rounds to about $1200, if possible, I would like to spend less. Would this be a good system for OC'ing? Could I lower some of the specs and then OC it to make it just as good if not better?

You can get a better overclock with DDR2 800 ram, and a gigabyte P965-DS3.

How much difference would it be if I stepped down to the e6300?

The e6400 has a 8 multiplier and the e6300 has a 7 multiplier, so the e6400 is easier to overclock and if you stick with ddr2667 then the extra multiplier would help overclocking.

The hiper 580w is a good psu if your still looking for a psu.

Yea like lance said. You can go down to an e6300 and get DDR2 800 ram. You'll still get a good overclock, along with the DS3. And the PSU that darktop16 suggested is a good one.
