Just want to make sure I'm getting the right parts.

for gaming right now any 6 series C2D will do great
for future gaming a e6850 or a q6600 would be nice

I'm thinking you should get the Q6600 once it's in stock.

Okay, I know I said I'm not going to overclock, but from reading alot I've been inspired. Would you change anything to accomodate for Ocing? Obviously I'll get some aftermarket cooling when necessary.

24 Hrs Bump.

"Okay, I know I said I'm not going to overclock, but from reading alot I've been inspired. Would you change anything to accomodate for Ocing? Obviously I'll get some aftermarket cooling when necessary."

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 LGA 775 Sources said these overclock extremely well.
Patriot eXtreme Performance 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel

Would you change anything to accomodate for overclocking? Why?

Another bump

Changes or confirmation of good Ocing parts?

change your ram to crucial ballistix, xms2c4, or maybe even gskill HZ.
i dont know how good those patriot overclock, but i know the xms2c4 and HZ do. i've heard good things about the crucial. i'd get whichever one was cheaper.
as stated before, i am a big fan of sli, but i get good prices. if you are going to sli 8800gtx you better plan on watercooling them or having a REALLY good case flow. they get hot, which in return will heat up your entire system.

Thanks, they all look like great ram, but I'm in the market for 2x2gb. Do you know of any 2X2GB ram that overclocks really well

I won't be getting sli'd 8800gtx's anymore.
