I think that's what he wants in his new rig.  I was wondering if anything could be salvaged or if he's exaggerating the slowness of his old one.

I really disliked my IP35-E, possibly because it seemed to be defective in a way that ate RAM.

I'd suggest the Gigabyte EP35-DS3L or P35-DS3L instead; it's tidy and generally servicable in many ways.  It may not be the best overclocker in the universe, but I've gotten an E6750 to 3.50 even with my conservative approach (voltage much over 1.40 = bad) and cheapo mismatched RAM.

My old rig is P4, 945 chipset.

I think that's what he wants in his new rig.

I'd wander more towards Gigabyte or Asus with the motherboard. 
Try to get RAM with a CAS Latency of 4; you didn't specify what you were looking at.
The PSU you listed does not have very good reviews; I'd look at an Antec PSU if I were you.

Everything else looks great, great CPU and great performance per dollar on the graphics card too.

IHMO get an antec PSU, would be a lot better.

I ran the gigabyte P35 ds3 for a while and it does do an ok OC with a E6750 processor (running 3.4GHz).

I also had issues with the IP35E, it just didn't like certain RAM.  I had a heck of a time figuring it out.  Two machines that were identical kept crashing sporadically.  Swapped out the Crucial for identical spec-ed Mushkin RAM and the problem went away.  Normally I'm all for Abit motherboards, but I'd stay away from that one.
