Depending on how hard of an overclock your trying the stock CPU cooler will be enough.
Get this memory instead it's cheaper and has extended voltage warranty if you plan on pushing your memory hard.

Never knew you were willing to spend that much but the mushin PSU you suggested is much better then the one you have mentioned earlier, I don't like OCZ PSU's, not shy to admit it.
Sorry for the late responces, I have started university and it's a major priority right now.

They are both very good memory, mine just came out to be 40$ cheaper (after mail in rebate) which is why I suggest it, also I should run stable at a lower voltage. Not much though.
Whatever memory you choose just be sure that the first thing you do is up the voltage to 2.1V, stock is 1.8V for DDR2 memory, failure to do so will likely result in crashes.

Before you buy anything can you post your final build so I can double check something.
I just noticed you have Home basic, you want the home premium version of vista. (32-bit)

Against highly suggest home premium over home basic.
Your new CPU is the equivalent of a 5.6GHz pentium 4 (of course there isn't such a thing), but this is how AMD compared itself with the 5600+ rating, just like a 3800+ is the equivalent of a 3.8GHz or 3800MHz pentium 4.
You should be quite happy with your new processor when comparing it to your older one.
Comparing the two systems is like comparing a apple to an orange, you just can't.
Your motherboard and RAM will be fine, just be sure to up the voltages otherwise your rig won't be stable.
Good luck with the build :whistling:
