hi guys... first overclocking system ever! =)

I'm a bit of a newbie here so as there are some really experienced people here I would like to ask if this system (based a bit on a tutorial on tom's hardware) is ok to be overclocked and receive good performance for at least 6-12 months and possibly 8800GS upgradable for when the card will be more affordable for my pockets. =)

  1. go wid e4300 not e6400. u can easily reach 3.0ghz(335x9) wid e4300 on stock cooling. but when u overclock both the processor at 3.0ghz E6400 will be better than e4300 (bcuz of more fsb(communication between hardwares)) and
    no water cooling needed for e4300 and take a dd2 667 ram
