Talking rest of the parts

Sapphire Radeon HD 2900 XT 512mb
Intel C2Q Q6600

wow...you got a nice rig going there, n1gh7. I heard the P5K Deluxe is the best motherboard, to overclock a quad core.

From the list that Invisible gave, choose the Crucial Ballistix. Price can't be beat, for the performance, this set of RAM gives.

Choose the PC Power & Cooling 610w. Cheaper than the Corsair 620HX, and has legendary status, as a high quality power supply.

The MX518 is all you need.

The Barracuda 500GB is a good choice, for space and a pretty fast 7200rpm drive.
