DFI Lanparty Ultra-D is your overclocking board.

I'll let someone else take some swings at power supplies, cause it's not my thing.

well looks like an antec 550W psu,(aka this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103941) but why buy an SLI mobo when he doesnt have SLI?
would this one be good for him?
EDIT: oops forgot got dual core & if dfi is as good as you say....

Who said anything about a sli mobo?
Probably should go with a non-expert lanparty, costs like $70 less and is all he will need. Ive heard reports of the expert board killing processors, which would really suck @$$.

Antec or OCZ =

Okay I'm making a set up and will explain why it's good, will edit in a few minutes..

Processor:
I believe you said you'd be overclocking, so like others have said, the Opteron 170 would probably be your best bet. It overclocks like a beast, period.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103586

Motherboard:
Going along with the overclocking scheme, the DFI Lanparty UT Motherboard is fantastic for overclocking. Watch out for the expert boards though, they're known for having some problems.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152

Video Card:
With your budget, it's not hard to see you want to get the most out of your system, and since the 7800GTX 512mb is currently the best video card out, it'll be able to show you put a lot into your computer. It's able to play any game out right now and will continue to for a very long time.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143044

Power Supply:
Yes the Antec and OCZ power supplies are nice, but PC Power & Cooling has an awesome powersupply out, with 650W peak power and 510W Constant. It's very well made and reliable, you wont be dissatisfied.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703001

RAM - Well it's a definate that you will want 2Gigs of RAM, but which kind is best for overclocking? Well, it's my honest opinion that this OCZ ram is the best bang for the buck ram out there. This ram can overclock like crazy, have fun.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210

Hard Drive - Well I would have suggested some Raptors, but I thought in your case you may prefer space to speed of performance. If not, you can easily get a raptor as a side hard drive or something, but if not, these 250Gig Seagates will do you nicely.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148065

Case - Thermaltake XASER, a very well built case with nice airflow and room, it also is very durable.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154

Soundcard - The Creative Soundblaster X-FI is definately the best for the money. It delivers amazing sound with advanced eax support, bringing you crazy nice, crisp sound.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102188

Optical Drives - Don't really matter much, just maybe get two along these lines:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106013
and
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827101668

CPU Cooler - The Zalman 120mm fan is amazing for overclocking, being very reliable and durable.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118115

This'll bring you close to your budget, but you still have some room. Need a keyboard or mouse, maybe some speakers?
Mouse:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826104191

Keyboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823175103

Speakers:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121118

You'll have a monster of a system.
