Just need some opinions and suggestions on the parts i've chosen for a PC im getting put together, it will be mainly used for gaming and I want to overclock some as it seems like a waste not to :D . If I could push it to 3.2-3.6ghz that would be fantastic. Also note im from Australia so dont swarm me in newegg links if you recommend me something else :p  thanks.

Specs:

e6600
Asus x1950pro 256mb
GA-965P DS3
Antec NeoHE 550w PSU
Corsair DDR2 2GB PC-6400 (2x XMS2 1GB) TWIN2X2048-6400 RAM (5-5-5-12)
Seagate Barracude 320gb HDD
Pioneer DVD re-writer
Gigabyte AURORA GZ-FSCA1-ANB Black case

The aftermarket CPU cooling I was thinking of getting was the Big Typhoon.

Any opinions would be appreciated, thanks :)

The X1900GT will perform roughly the same as the X1950Pro, ild swap if you can get it for less.

P5B-E Plus :D 

Wasnt the PK cheaper?

And last but not least, consider the E6400, thats alot of money that you could put into gfx of mobo.

Bingo! Especially if you're gonna OC anyway. I'd think the 6600 was overkill. Spend the money you save there on the mobo. 975X instead of 965. Good ol' Tom's recomended the MSI 975X Platinum. Seems like a pretty good board for the price.

But then, I'm still a noob here, so take it for what ya will! :p
