Default building a pc

I'm building a gaming pc and am gonna be playing mostly bf2, doom3, and hl2. Could you all help me come up with a list of parts (only the ones i really need, not alot of money i have) and post them here. thx in advance.

**EDIT**

I was searching TigerDirect.com and found this barebones kit. I was wondering if I could buy this and upgrade it to 1gb ram and have it run my games.

**EDIT**

Forgot the link, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...LC-HomePg-TLC1

AMD processor. 3200+ minimum
DFI Lanparty nForce4 board
512MB or 1GB RAM. Corsiar, OCZ, Kingston, Patriot. (Value RAM if not overclocking)
6600GT, or 6800GT, or 7800GTX - depending on how much you wanna spend
good case and good PSU
WinXP
optical drives
hard drivers
any extras you want

I know I was kind of vauge but it all really personal preference and how much you are willing to spend. Those specs I posted will all run your games at medium settings or more.

ValueRAM isn't good for OC'ing? Damn...I was under the impression it was. 0_0 How much can they be OC'ed? Or can they not be overclocked at all?
