Default Building a gaming rig

Basically I want the most bang-for-my buck gaming rig, so please be very nit-picky and tear this build apart. In this build all I really care about are good sound and good gaming. I need all peripherals (I want a headset, so I don't need speakers) and will have to purchase all parts.
Here is the link to my wish list
https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...his+gaming+rig

iCEMAT Black Siberia 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headset - Retail 59.99
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16836508101

total thus far: 1290.89 (not counting the $80
in mail in rebates) I still need a mobo, cpu, and os and I don't know what to get.
I am open to all suggestions and would also like to know if all the parts are compatible, I would like to order the parts as soon as possible, and are there any cheaper newegg alternatives?

I am trying to keep costs down, so if you see something that is unnecessarily powerful or just isn't needed (or if there is a cheaper alternative), please let me know. My budget is sub $2000. I'd like to keep it in the 1500-1600 range if I can.

Your links don't work.

Aside from that, I would get DDR2-800 to get rid of a possible bottleneck.

Not unless the CPU isn't fast enough to feed it.

e6320 would work fine. its conroe so that mean 4m l2 cache and a little ocing would bring it to the same as a e6600.
