It will be much easier for everyone, trust me, to put what it is after each link. (EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX(G92), OCZ 700W ATX12V etc.)

So, here are the specs:
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341018 OCZ 700W PSU
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130339 EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX(G92) 512MB
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103283 AMD Phenom 8450 Toliman 2.1GHz 3x (Triple Core CPU)
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103055 COOLER MASTER V8 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131331 ASUS M3A78-T AM2+/AM2 790GX Motherboard
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811196025 AeroCool BK Black steel ATX Mid Tower
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166 G.SKILL 4GB DDR2 SDRAM 1066 (PC2 8500) Memory
Goal: Over clock it mildly to max capacity of its ability. Game anything from the half life series (TF2 and CS). And just have fun with it.
Also, i would like to know if the heat sink will fit in the case with everything, if i can unlock the fourth core in the processor and to know if its a good buy.
thanks in advanced, Jon

so this processor:
or you can overclock this easily to get 4850 performance:
and this psu:
and this hsf:
edit it will kick the ass of that e5200 build

and at $60 he can definately get a 4870 so that makes it even with the gpu.
now we're just talking about the processors, and the kuma will kick the e5200 for good! sorry mate

The new 45nm X3's are actually competing with the E8400/E8500's.
And if you wait a few months, you'd be able to get a 4870 for about the same price as a 4850 now.

Here's a link shows the e5200 way surpassing the x2 7750 once overclocked.
sorry for getting a little off topic i just don't think people realize what the e5200 can do, it's a 45 nm wolfdale for goodness sake.
|well you gotta remember that not all those trip core phenoms can stay stable once the 4rth core is unlocked, even with the "right" MoBo.. its more like a luck of the draw, i'd go with the 7750 Kuma just for sheer OC ability.|
