Default Best CPU + Mobo for $475 Shipped

Okay, my friend has a $475 Budget, he only needs a new Motherboard, CPU, and Heatsink/Cooler so he can over clock.

Please give me suggestions on what I should order for him.

MAX is 475$ including shipping and tax

also if this makes a difference in motherboard choice he has OCZ Platinum Revision 2 Memory

i've picked out these two parts are they good or ?

i would just get a quad core and that mobo, no need to OC when you have 4 cores too so a cooler isnt needed
