Looking to upgrade

So I'm looking at upgrading my system.

Here's what I'm looking at right now.
Motherboard:

CPU:

RAM:

I'm thinking I can overclock the ram to 1066 to get the full use out of the motherboard's speeds. Other people claim to have been able to.

I currently have a Gforce 7800 GT as my GFX card. I'll upgrade that when the next Gforce card comes out and the 8800 GT's drop in price even more.

Am I screwing up anything here like clashing compatibility or just making any stupid buying decisions?

Great choices imho. Should be very overclockable and provide high performance when coupled with 8800 or better GPU.

I was looking around at their 8800's and I saw this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's about 6 dollars cheaper than the one you listed Ausch, is pre overclocked, and comes with a game.

I don't know though. When is the next generation of Gforce GFX card coming out? I would expect the price to drop quite a bit once it is available.

I saw that one but it didn't get very good reviews so that's I suggested the one I did.
