G-Skill 4x1GB DDR2 800 4-4-3-5 2.0V-2.1V
eVGA 8800GTS Superclocked 640MB
2x 36 GB Western Digital Raptor (System Partition/RAID-0)

Corsair 620W (Triple Rail) Modular Power Supply

Will I be able to get to around 3.0GHz overclocked w/o any issues with the above setup? I know the G-Skill I got (RAM) has been known to OC very well and the price is awesome. Does anyone see anything I need to do different to be able to reach 3-3.2GHz OC'd??? Please let me know as I plan to buy this next pay check!

thats looks like a pretty sweet setup, the only thing i could suggest is maybe up the cooler to a thermalright ultra 120 extreme, maybe a 6600 to make sure you reach those higher clocks? but with that ram you should have no problem hitting the higher FSBs

I say, scrap the raptors, go for these babies and stick em in raid 0 or waht ever you like http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=40000014+1035407760+ 1035915133&Description=Seagate+Barracuda&name=SATA +3.0Gb%2fs

Take that saved money from the raptors, and stick that into your GPU budget.
Upgrade to GTX, possibly SLI GTX

Oh and you can def reach 3.2ghz

Oh and also, don't get the superclocked version of any card. Simply buy the regular and do it yourself. Nvidia is kind enough to provide the software so you can OC on your own :]

You didn't change anything lol?

Oh yes and do you have vista? Otherwise 4gb ram is useless. Although you don't really need more than 2gb atm anyways.

Argh and i'm not so knowledgeable on the sound cards, but i know fatal1ty = paying more for nothing. Maybe find a non fatal1ty one?

Lol it's 1:33 AM my posts are dis organized and bad hah.
