is this case good for Overclocking or should i choose a different one?
If i do succeed in overclocking the cpu and maybe the gpu would the power supply be enough? or is it too much?

Also, how does the memory's voltage affect the computer.

1. Too heavy on $$ for CPU+Mobo
2. Too lite on GPU for churning out the best frames/$$
3. i7 runs tri channel while AM3 runs dual channel so 2 x 2 DDR3 good to go
4. Alternative suggestion:
