If you want to overclock try and get faster ram.Say you get pc3200 it runs stable at 200mhz fsb, good ram will be stable till about 235mhz pc3200.
But if you get say pc4400 it will be stable at 250 mhz.It costs more but overclocks easier and more stable because it was designed for those speeds, have a look in to that.The zalman 7700cs is the best 939 socket air cooler you can get.If you really want to get water cooling though that will out perform the zalman youll have to pay more money.Asus are generally very stable AVOID the a8n sli series as they will cause problems I had one and it lasted 5 months the chipset fan jammed and the chip went. I havent heard anything about the a8n-e.Does the size of the hard drive suit you, bigger is always better. your board supports SATA II it shouldnt cost any more, a 50 euro here for what you want and 55 for SATA II. That case will do, the psu, em you might have to replace that because i had a stock 430 watt psu with my case and my system didnt start and bought an ocz 520w powerstream.Antec are the leaders and the best psu makers in my opinion.
Nice system when up and running.
