Sub $1000 Home built budget gaming rig - need advice to Overclock OC

This is my first rig built yesterday and want to use for games, movies and Adobe PSE10. As SSD prices get closer to HDD prices I will add one later and replace the Caviar.
Does anyone have a similar set up that can get me close to 4.5Ghz and stable?

$40 8GB G.Skill Ares DDR3-2133 PC-17000
