I would definately choose SATA II. Not only because it is faster, but it is smaller in size compared to the IDE ribbon.

Now, if you want to OC your PC, 4GHZ, like you said, it might take some better cooling than just two fans. IF not, either it will fail to OC and go back to stock or it will have high temperature readings.

For the motherboard, ASuS or Intel motherboards are best.

For memory, and PC5400-8000 is great. Costs vary from 200-600.

I'll still think about the Sata 3.0GBs thing...

And I'm planning on getting a fan to put onto my heatsink too, I just want to wait and find out what size I'd need though. Thanks for letting me in.

Oh, really now, don't get IDE. You'll regret it so much.

I still need help just with the motherboard. I want the Intel since it could work better with an Intel processor, but I am not sure if it is capable of being overclocked.

Get a Seagate 7200.10 Series Hard Drive. It works wonders cause of Perpendicular technology. You can get a 320GB one for about 100 dollars on NewEgg
