Thanks for the link, couldn't find it.

It wont let me pricematch my video card on ncix... do they have a rule against pricematching video cards?

Probably because that video card is currently out of stock at NCIX.

Just a heads up about the Samsung burner, the one I have refuses to burn DL DVD's. It will start burning but always craps out on me. Not saying that you will have the same problem but this is the experience I'm having. I even updated the firmware and that didn't help.

First time I've bought something other than an LG and I won't be making that mistake again :)

You were right, the video card is not in stock, I will have to wait for it to be restocked. And thank you for your suggestion on the dvd burner, I am going to change to an LG burner

The G.SKILL F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ PC2-8000 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1000 CL5-5-5-1 are good ram. If you were able to spend an extra $10.00 you can get a set of Mushkin XP PC2-8000 Redline 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1000 CL5-5-5-12 for $107.34 at Memory House. You could even see about price matching them at NCIX.

Would the Redline be much better?

Running those identical Gskills 5-5-5-15 at 2.08V at 8x480 currently. (I just installed a new mobo last week, working on my OC still) I've ran them at DDR2-1068 at those timings and voltage. Those Mushkin Redlines are nice ram too, heard nothing but good things about them.
