I am going to buy what ever it needs to do what it takes. I just need to learn it. I am probably going to be spending another 200 on a motherboard.

You're not going to get very high on AMD chips just so you know... And overclocking increases heat output, and increasing voltages does too.

And for a mobo\\CPU... DFI Lanparty and a E8400 would work nice with a Zalman 9700.

that won't really be that cool... especially with the stock heatsink... you're talking over a 25% jump from the stock multi... you can't just crank up the voltage and not have it get a little warmer...

not to mention OC's on AMD's latest models are less then amazing...

"I got an error" is a meaningless statement, if you can't be bothered to share the error... I can't be bothered to help...

Basically I am going to get a powersupply (600W - 700W), a minimum of 2 Gig, 1 Sata terra Harddrive to go along with my other 2 sata hardrives, an ASUS Motherboard if it is possible for OC, 2 Sata DVD/ Burners, a new case with great airflow, and a heatsink since I will need it. I have a tiny room 10 x 12 which is always hot from this Computer so I am wanting to build this computer to stay alot cooler if possible. I am willing to build a computer by someone else directions even if I have to if that makes since.

Just tell me what I need to build this computer then but 4GHZ would be nice and what do I need exactly to keep it cool.

Overclocking it won't help it stay cool. Heat output is going to be signifigantly higher, though the gains in power is worth it.

This setup should see that E7200 to or around 4Ghz. It will run about $320.

Get this board:

This CPU:

This heatsink (basically one of the best air HS):

That heatsink is one of the best, and if you put a 120mm fan on it you should be fine.

The computer will produce heat regardless of how many fans if you overclock it. And 100 deg F isn't really alot. You will be hitting about 50 or 60c when you OC the 7200 (roughly 135F).

So should I get the E8400 and not worry about OC at all then and keep the heat down to nothing right. or should i get something else but it must be over 3.0

My suggestion for the whole set up (ready to go for 4.0GHz.). All from Newegg.
  • COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $84.99
  • Update DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard $129.99
  • CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply $99.99
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8400 $194.99
  • G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ $89.99
  • XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler $36.99
Subtotal: $636.94

That E8400 is an easy overclockable chip, and doesn't run too hot. Temperatures aren't the main problem with this chip, but voltage is. Most chips can hit 4.0GHz withouth using excessive voltages though. Also, even with a very mild overclock, and E8400 will outperform any dual core AMD chip, and at 4.0GHz, it's a monster.
