    do you actually need to overclock when the cpu is already fast enough? well if you are talking about the specs if it is good enough, yeah it is good enough to last you for some time

    The first thing you need to be sure of is whether all of the parts are compatible with each other.

    With today's processors overclocking is not really necessary anymore.Sounds like you are going a little overboard on some hardware. Been a gamer for years here from the early days of World of Warcraft, Everquest and the like..Have not really seen a PC today that can't run the best of games like Guild Wars and other graphic intense programs. You should be more than fine.
