Default Will this make a good gaming rig?

Well im going to make a budget high preformance pc and i have come up with this:

Intel Pentium D 805- overclocked 2 4.1ghz
1gb ram
Water Cooling System
Leadtek Geforce 7300 gt 256mb

Will those basic components make for a fast gaming rig i can run FPS's on at high quality?

with skillz and photoshop

like the other guys have said you are not even close to guaranteed getting 4.1ghz. THG are the bane of my existence after this article because in my opinion it has created a monster in the form of hype. what most people don't realise for starters is that you need a GOOD motherboard to pull off the overclock in the first place.

as for the watercooling don't go for one of the "el cheapo" kits like the bigwater.

for the graphics card you could definitely do better than that. you would be better served by an x1300 for that price range in my opinion
