Default Think I got the build... want someone more experienced to look over

Alright, this is my first build attempt I say attempt because I am not sure if these parts will actually "go" together so if someone with experience could look it over real quick and let me know I would greatly appreciate it. I plan on overclocking too, so would i need more fans or cooling?
Overall without a monitor it costs 510 which I think is a great deal, unless someone knows something better.

Instead of the Sapphire motherboard, I recommend the Foxconn. Same North/South-bridge. Everything else looks good.

Honestly I don't understand much about motherboards, but I'll make the change. do you think this will be able to run most new games at highest speed? I plan to overclock it too.

With the motherboard I suggested and that cooler, you should be able to hit at least 3.3GHz. You'll be able to run most games on high settings, however in very high you will see a good drop in FPS. If you want to play more games at higher settings, I recommend the HD4870.

How do you think it would run with Quake, HL2, CoD, etc.

Which CoD? HL2 and Quake would be easily handled.
