do you want to spend as much as $1000, or as low as possible?
Do you need things like monitors, mouse, keyboard, etc?

where at?

I would go with an E8600, an HD4870, and a good X48/P45 chipset for good OC'ing. Gaming on a quad-core won't do you much. I also don't recommend getting a quad-core anymore because the i7's are out. If you want something for heavy multi-threading processing just go ahead and get the i7's quad-cores with hyper-threading.

Does the OP actually overclock though? And he might only have a 19" panel, in which case a HD 4870 would be pretty pointless.

i wouldnt suggest it to someone that might know how.
Sure this forum can help, but its not as supportive as having a person right next to you.

OC'ing is very very easy if you can keep your cool.
