Also whats good ram to go with it. I found some good gskill 2x 1gb sticks that were at 2-3-2-5 I think for 198. Ive heard good things about gskill. Also about cpu I was going to get a opty 165 since people said they got decent oc's but if there are better cpus than that ok. Dont want to spend more then 500 bucks though. I want it to be a dual core though

The Opteron 165 will suit you just fine. They commonly overclock to 2.6ghz and sometimes higher.

G.Skill ram is excellent for overclocking
OCZ is also good
and then you have the Corsair XMS
