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.

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.

I just noticed you have Home basic, you want the home premium version of vista. (32-bit)

HD: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822144701 (my friend is going to hook me up with a box and stuff so thats how were going to get around the teacher.....thats how i could afford the better PSU)
Mobo: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131175 plz check the timming
Memory: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820146673 (notice the latency is only 4 and they are 800mhz sticks) :-}
PSU: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103771 (one last question, my old computer was a P4 3.0 Ghz w/HT...how does this compare speed wise?)
I already have 2 of these: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827136118
and one of these: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835888309
ok so thats it for whats in my cart.
my old system:
Memory was DDR 333Mhz (512 x 512)
CPU: P4 3.0 Ghz w/ HT
G-card: ATI Radeon 9800 XT 256MB 256bit
HD: WD caviar SE 120GB windows XP Pro
how does my new system compare?
i was realy happy with the prefourmance of my old one but it again was 5 years old....how reliable would u say my new one is?

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
