The 8800GTS 512mb is a better card unless you plan on playing at super high resolutions. I don't recommend you mix and match RAM, also if you want more then 4GB of RAM get Vista 64bit (though make sure you printer or any old hardware has drivers for it).

ok, what bout the 9600gt? or is the 8800gts still better? plus, i got rid of the ram u got, got 3 2gb corsair sticks of ram, and got th 64 bit operating system. So the motherboard u stated will still be ok with that? And what kind of cooling system would i need?

The 8800GTS that James recommended is still a lot better. Also, why do you want 6GB of RAM? Seems a lot to me, I think 4GB should be enough for gaming unless you're going to do a lot of multimedia work.

kk 4gb, so all thats left is this cooling system? So that computer would be able to run crysis at nearly full graphics?

Cooling system? What case will you be using for this? I think most cases have good case fans included in it (will only vary if you like it to be quiet). I have heard people buying Scythe fans.
I have the Noctua fans but those are really expensive ($20 per fan) and there are quite a few comparable ones for less money.
If you're overclocking, I suggest buying an aftermarket heatsink as well.

Your build should run crysis pretty good.

If you want 4GB, I suggest you purchase a 2x2GB kit.
Unless you are overclocking, the stock heatsink will be sufficient for your CPU.

Considering you don't overclock I suggest these changes.

If you want to spend every last penny, then I'd suggest another hard drive.
