Sweet. Drop the 8800Ultra to an 8800GTX, it's a waste. Also, you'll probably want another larger hard drive for storage. Look at the 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10.

Also, you'll want to invest in some good cooling for overclocking. That processor has an unlocked multiplier, so you can OC it a ton.

That video card looks good. I wouldn't mess with water cooling, especially if you're not really an experienced overclocker. Just get some good HSFs. Maybe the Tuniq Tower 120 for the CPU, some type of north/south bridge heatsinks, and some good case fans. That should run you about $100.

GDamn!!!! That's a nice system. Good choice on Crucial Ballistix. Best RAM of all time and that Core 2 Extreme!!! Wow. Run some benchmarks after it's built.
