Upgrading cpu,mobo,memory,video. Read several reviews and have these parts priced out. Going for a mid range (heavy) gaming system, budget is in around $650 +- $60. Can someone reassure me before spending? Memory has never been my strong suite and overclocking is mildly important.

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 - $188

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R - $109

PNY XLR8 4GB DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) - $59.99

Radeon HD 4870 1GB - $265

Total is roughly $625.

Appreciate any insight.
