I'm assuming that's only DDR2-800 RAM...

I'd step it up to DDR2-1000/1066 at least. If you get the DDR2-1066 Corsair Dominators they come with the fans. Another good choice are the Mushkin Redlines.

Definitely make sure you get PC2-8000 or 8500. Most people can reach 4GHz with them, so you don't want your RAM to hold back your processor. The Corsair 8500 that comes with the fan is awesome. Tons of huge overclocks @ XS with them. I've got them but I've get to push them. Everything else looks awesome.
