Nope. TBH I have never overclocked before.

Right. I saw that. Get a gygabite motherboard and an E8400.

E8400 seems to be too much for what he wants his system for.
I think he chose the E7300.

If he's not dong anything intensive, a E7300 would be fine. My dad's PC is running on a 939 Opteron @ 2.4 Ghz and it zips through Vista.

Rosewill R318-P-BK Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Foxconn P9657AA-8KS2H LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

StarTech FAN775E 95mm Ever Lubricate CPU Cooler - Retail

Rosewill RCX-TC001 Thermal Grease - Retail (Just in case)

Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory - Retail (X2)

Antec NeoPower 550 550W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Retail

POWERCOLOR HD2600XT 256MB GDDR4 Radeon HD 2600XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR4 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

Remember that this machine is being used for general purposes. No gaming. I decided against the quad core because I think the dual core I chose would be faster than the Q6600 I was considering. Any thoughts?

You don't need the heatsink you listed. The E8400 comes with one since it's the retail version. If you do buy a heatsink, buy a S9264 for $10 more. With the rebate it's about the same price.

It doesn't really matter for the GPU, but I would get something fanless. If you aren't gaming your GPU won't produce that much heat and will be dead silent.

OK I updated my spreadsheet to use the stock cooler and the GPU that Cabbs recommended.
