For RAM, the new Corsiar Vengeance is looking very good, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... also, I wouldn't do less then 8GB of RAM, it's more than enough for today, but who wants to replace that in 1-2 years.

Any case that can support and ATX motherboard (which is the style of motherboard you chose.) I personally recommend the HAF 912 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The power supply is the one place you do NOT want to go cheap! Corsair is an excellent brand and the TX750 V2 is more than enough power http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For the video card, do you want ATI or nVidia?

Any hard drive will do, but this one is pretty good. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Lastly, I noticed you wanted to overclock, that means you will NEED an after market heatsink. This is one of the highest rated heatsink out there: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
But make sure it fits your motherboard style (sorry I'm not very familiar with AMD mobos)

I'd probably want an nVidia graphics card. What would you recommend?
