3ghz yes, stock cooling not sure probably not, ram yes, mobo yes, increasing voltage i think you gotta raise it a little for it to be stable.

doubt it but im not exactly sure
just wait a while to you get more money and get an aftermarket cooler
with stock you will still get a good voerclock and really good performance

Some E4300s will reach 3.0ghz on stock cooling but don't count on it (really doubt it on stock voltage though) . I would just get an Freezer 7 for $20..

There should be some decent price drops on graphics card by the end of the months. CPUs, mobos should stay about the same and memory should drop a bit more too.

acualy it is possible from what i found from anandtech, all i have to do is increase the voltage to 1.4 or something: AnandTech: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300: Affordable and Highly Overclockable

Yes...that would make it more stable. Also like mrfluffles, a cheap Freezer 7 Pro, will handle the overclock nicely.
