You're welcome. I do recommend asking for recommendations in the Intel Motherboards forum on here.

It all depends on what you want to do with your system. If you want to game with it, forget the E5450+G41 motherboard combo b/c you'd never be able to make 4GHz. You need a decent P45 Express motherboard which can take you to 4GHz+.

At this point, I am not sure it is worth it to dump $80 on a decent P45 Express motherboard and another $40 on an E5450 for gaming considering that you can get more decent performance out of newer tech for the same money.

If you want a decent gaming system, dump both your mobo and CPU on e-bay, and buy a low cost Haswell i3 and a budget H81 mobo.

There's also the quality of the PSU. That's critical. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever overclock while a crappy PSU is powering your computer.
