~Need some upgrades under $300~

Well I really want to start overclocking to boost my systems performance so I decided to look at a different CPU cooler, better RAM and a RAM cooler.

I picked out a few things but the only thing is, is I really dont know if they are good or whether they will fit in my case. So, I scratched my ideas and came here to see if anyone could help out. I dont want to do any major overclocking my current voltage 2.4ghz so maybe 3.1 - 3.2 would be good.

Another issue is that I dont know what will fit in my case. Im afraid of ordering a big CPU cooler and then installing it and it not fitting, or bumping into a RAM cooler or my RAM itself. I have attached some pictures to help you all judge how big my case is and how much room I have.

So in short heres what i want:
Cpu cooler
RAM
RAM cooler
Any other usefull upgrades UNDER 300 dollars.

ALSO! +REP To anyone who can tell me what my cpu cooler is!!!
And remember i can go up to 300 dollars including shipping my area code is 28601 if you need to calculate it!

CURRENT CASE: Guardian 921 SPECS LINK--> LINK
Current CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600 Socket LGA 775 (Or just 775)
Current MOBO: ASUS P5N-D (Max ram support: ddr2 800 4 gigs only please) SPECS LINK ---> LINK
Current CPU cooler: UNKNOWN

I put my hand in the pictures so you can judge size.
