To start with, that mobo has onboard graphics. You won't need onboard graphics if you plan on buying separate GPUs.

As you're goingo to be overclocking you can save some money and get the 955.

Change the ram for this one G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

and you're ready to go! Have fun
