I still think at your resolution you'd be better served by a slightly less expensive graphics card and a more powerful cpu. The 2gb of vram will be wasted in most titles at 1440x900, and the 6950 will not be able to make up for the lack of L3 cache and the 4th core in CPU intensive games. Along the line of overclocking, a good aftermarket cpu cooler is always a good idea.

That is a better processor than the Athlon II X3. You can try to unlock the last 2mb of l3 cache to have the full 6mb l3 cache by using ACC.

You will need an aftermarket cpu cooler as that chip is oem and does not come with one. The 212+ is a popular budget choice.

C2 stepping so you should be able to get a good overclock between 3.5 and 3.8, dependent on how much voltage you want to throw at it.
