Well for that kind of cash, you're gonna have a pretty damn good build that should be quite capable...but if OC-ing, then I guess cooling may be somewhat of a factor depending on how far you wanna go.
I'm also not sure how far the new AMD tri-cores OC, but they should still be pretty good performers for the price-point.
I look forward to you getting that budget rig put together and kickin ass dude! I think it's gonna do quite well and prove that ya don't need to spend 1200, 1500 or even 2k to have a PC get the job done! Sure there are different specifics, but I go for a lower budget and get the best bang for my budgeted dollar possible, for me that's more rewarding!
