With overclocking, does it reduce the life of the parts at all if properly cooled?

Thanks, are all the parts compatible and will the psu be enough with overclocking?

Hmm... Now I'm wondering whether or not it's worth buying the 560 ti right now. Is there a similar performance and quality one made by AMD. I might go with that and just upgrade when the ti's price drop. Are amd and nvidia cards interchangeable??

Does anyone see anywhere i can save a little money without sacrificing performance?

Ok thanks for the help. Are the amd gpu's good, because everyone I've talked to seems to think the current nvidia technology is far superior.
