Default Oh Overclocking...

I'm building a computer with these parts:
CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 Wolfdale 3.33GHz
Ram: CORSAIR 4GB (2X2GB)
Video Card: Diamond Radeon HD 4850 512MB
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 550 GB
Motherboard: Asus P5Q-E Green Motherboard - Intel P45
Case: NZXT Lexa Blackline ATX

I really dont think I need to do any serious Overclocking now, but if I did in the future would this be a good system to do it to?

thats a great Overlockable system but what AMP is trying to say is that an aftermarket CPU cooler is so much better to overclock with. U can a little right now but it would be better with an aftermarket Heatsink fan

The E8600 overclocks like a trooper, the P5Q is a good board too by all accounts, can you afford to get the 4870 instead of the 4850?
