Intel E6750 2.66ghz (I want to oc the cpu to 3.0 ghz.)
Zotac 8800GT
Gigabyte P35 DS3L
Antec Performance True430P 430W Max With PFC

How are these? :

CORSAIR Dominator CL4 DHX 800Mhz PC2 6400 DDR2 RAM 2GB (2X1GB) (Voltage 2.1 V Cas 4 - 4 - 4 - 12 ) 96$

I really don't understand from timings but this one's cheaper with different timings :

CORSAIR Dominator CL5 DHX 800Mhz PC2 6400 DDR2 RAM 2GB (2X1GB) (Voltage 1.8 V Cas 5 - 5 - 5 - 18) 119$

Other suggestions are also welcome.

Too expensive. I really like my ADATA extreme edition. 800mhz 4-4-4-12. I payed $38 after a small rebate. With timings (CAS), lower is better. I would look for RAM with 800mhz and 4-4-4-12 like I got. Should be under $50. Might as well get 4 gb at that price huh?

I'm outside US. I can't get that kind of prices anywhere.

It's not like 3.0 will be the highest speed I'm going to oc. I would try to go higher as long as it's safe with stock cooling.
