I would change a few things on that build.

ECS has a reputation for not overclocking very well at all. I would go for this EVGA board. It has good reviews on the egg as well as here on OCN. Plus, it is cheaper after rebate.

Even though Seasonic is a great brand, I don't think 430W will cut it for this build. Spurge a bit more and get a 500W+ PSU from a reputable manufacterer like Silverstone, Corsair HX's(OEM Seasonic), PC Power & Cooling, or the Tt Toughpower Series.

I Agree eVGA is better. Thanks for the note .

Anyhow I feel that SeaSonic PSU is the one (Change any thing but this PSU).

The 5000+/5200+ have x13 multipliers. The 3600+ has a x9.5 multiplier. I'm just skeptical that 430W will suffice for a 8800GTS.
