Default Revamping my system

so most of my stuff is pretty much up to date, (system in sig below). however im looking to go quad core soon, and i'd like to OC my computer to a stable 3.0-3.2 GHZ, posssibly another 8800. however when i try to OC my computer manually i can never get it stable at 3.0 (maybe i just suck)

i recently realized that all 4 of my ram isnt exactly the same one, i'll post up CPU-Z screenshots when i get home. but when i push my FSB a little bit windows seem to freeze under load. could the problem be relevant to memory?

but anyways, heres the list of future parts to buy

quad core processor (depends on what comes out next quarter)
thermaltake V1 CPU cooler

1 more 8800GTS to SLi
in which case i will have to bump up the power supply
