Default Favorite parts to overclock?

I'm about to build a new gaming PC and i am looking forward to overclocking it, but i was wondering what are your favorite parts to overclock with? Any particular parts you had the most success with?

Parts like:

I heard the q6600 CPU was a good one. What others do you like?

For gaming performance the best thing to OC is your graphics card.

The Q6600 is a good OCer, and there are other dual core chips that have tons of OCing potential.

My E6600 is for sale, for example.
