ASUS P5N32-E is a terrible board for overclocking Quad's, firstly because I guess its 650i which doesn't go great with Quads and that its a hybrid chipset (ask Nosboost300 he had the board and couldn't go past 3.0ghz on his q6600) get a EP35-DS3R instead

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

thats better spec'ed RAM

get the Xigmatek Rifle 122mm CPU Cooler instead of your Rosewill cooler

for 5$ more get this

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply 90 - 264 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Power Supplies

9600GT SLI beats a single 8800 GTS

SLI are mainly for 24" or larger monitors
