for gfx brands, evga and xfx are good.
for psu you could get the corsaid 520w psu
make sure you dont buy a psu that comes with the case...not recommended.
for ram- get 2gb crucial ballistix

If you post your budget that would also help a lot.

Get a Q6600, a p5n-e sli not a p5n32-e sli, any xfx 8800, crucial ballistix or cosair ram, at least 500W cooler master psu, a Antec 900 case, and you might want a cpu cooler.

I disagree....

a q6600 and a 650i Chipset don't mix, probably good chance that a Coolermaster eXtremepower doesn't have enough rails to keep a massively overclocked system

go with the 610 silencer for psu, not cooler master they're usually a no-no
i suggest the ip35 pro for a mobo or an EVGA 680i if you want to SLI in the future

My budget is around $800 but I don't need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, or keyboard

If you post links to the specific hardware that would be nice. so far I've changed the ram to this
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
but nothing else has changed, Everyone seems to disagree, so i'll just keep waiting, but thanks for all the comments
