Cool The new OC gamer build has begun!

Well guys, I have started ordering new parts for a budget gaming build that I am going to build and OC the stink out of.
Just ordered the Intel E2160 CPU and a Thermalright Ultra Extreme Heatsink for it. That will be all from this pay check but at the end of the month I will order a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L ATX mobo and the RAM, hopefully Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500 DDR2 2GB kit.
-Will definitely be posting some results up. I will get the video card last so I have time to put the other stuff together and see what new cards come out in the meantime.

Whatbout the graphics?! I have the exact same build except for the ram, overclocks to 3.0GHz on stock cooling.

I would just stick with the PC2-6400 Ballistix. And seeing as though you dont mind overclocking, try to get it to PC2-8500 speeds yourself.

It just has a higher multiplier. I am not using water so there is no point in going for 400FSB. I will be pursuing 3.5GHz.
Offtopic- when are you going to invest in a new PC vernong?
