First Computer Build Got some Questions

Alright this will be my first pc build and I have a couple of questions. First off here are the components I will be using: Intel i7 930 , ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard, Corsair 6gb Dominator Ram, Diamond Radeon HD 5970, Ultra X4 1050Watt PSu. I will be using an aftermarket cpu cooler and a coolermaster 840 Full Tower case. In total I will have 800GB of Hard Drives and a dvd burner and a blu ray player for optical drives.

Now on to my questions….
First will I be able to run 64 bit Windows 7 with that amount of ram or will I need more?
I plan on overclocking the i7 to around 3.5-3.8ghz is there a program or a really thorough article that will help me to do this?
What is the biggest monitor I can possibly use and still keep a sharp looking screen?

i want to make sure i have the right equipment to do the things i enjoy playing games, surfing the web and doing homework thanx
