The platinum has lower voltage and tighter timings, the ram mentioned by shadow is designed for triple channel i7 setups, these two are dual channel kits.

Just to to let you know the 940 CPU you have listed will not plug into a GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 Motherboard.

But the new AMD 550 PHENOM II X2 or the 955 X4 CPU will work in the GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Or the AMD PHENOM II X4 940 BLACK EDITION QUAD You have listed Will Work with this Motherboard

get the antec 300 or antec 900 (depends what you like)

for the PSU get one from PC P&C

for the ram this will do fine: OCZ Platinum AM3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C7 1333MHz

Introduction:
When it comes to overclocking, one requires only the best components, including processors, memory and, of course, motherboards. With motherboards, there are so many chipsets to choose from that a lot of trial and error comes into play when picking the correct one for you. As an enthusiast, I push the limits of my hardware to squeeze every bit of juice out of them that I can. When it comes to AMD processors, such as the Phenom II X4 955, I found the AMD 790FX/SB750 chipset to be the most stable for achieving high overclocks. One manufacturer has taken a proven enthusiast platform and designed a board around the 790FX/SB750 chipset for those yearning high benchmarks, such as our readers at OCC.

ASUS has had a sub-brand called the Republic of Gamers for some time now and designs its products to be the finest products available to gamers, according to ASUS. Its line includes both motherboard and video cards that are built to be the best. One of the series aimed at AMD users from ASUS is the ROG Crosshair series, which traditionally were built using nVidia chipsets. However, for the third board in the series, ASUS opted for the 790FX chispet with its proven stability and speed. The Crosshair III Formula also adds special features that set it apart from other 790FX based boards, which we will see inside.
