Yep, that's great. There is no need to waste money on a Tuniq Tower though if you're not OC'ing. The stock cooler will be fine.

If you're willing to spend a little more and get one item from somewhere else, you should get a Xeon E3110 or E8400. They are the same thing.

Me and Vitaminx talked about that, but they aren't in stock anywhere at a reasonable price (sometimes they're around $290), and the E6750 is still a decent CPU.

You'll be fine with 4GB of memory. When and if the need ever arises, you can always get more.

If you ever do decide to OC you'll be wishing you hadn't bought that RAM, it's very cheap for 2x2GB though. Good choice with 64 bit BTW.

No, by the time you need 8GB of memory, DDR3 will be at a reasonable price and all boards will support it.

When you overclock a CPU, you increase the FSB speed, this increases the memory frequency, so you need your RAM to be capable of running at higher speeds.
