Default Upgrade how does it look

I selected those parts for my new rig. THe CPU price will be about $240 when I buy it.

MOBO, ASUS SLI Support AM2 Deluxe Edition $149.99

After Market CPU Thermaltake Big Typhoon Cooling Fan with Heatsink $49.99

Artic Sliver 5 (Don't feel I should need a link for this) $5.99.00

Here comes my question please look at ram for me.
OCS 512 MB x 2 (1G GIG) DDR2 667 $103.99

AMD Socket AM2 4200 Windsor Core $240.00

Total cost 549.99 nowmy questions.
1. Could I downgrade to a AMD 3800



Its going be a be a $71.00 Price difference and I was thinking I could prob easly push a extra 200 MHz out of this puppy with my better cooling (My CPU cooler will psuh 55 CFM at 16 DBA
2. Ram is this good ram, I have no difference with DDR2 ram, i'd like idealy 1 GIG not more then 115 bucks with a heat speader.
3. Any more comments?

I will buy on July 24th.

I'd aslo be force to buy a IDE expansion card due to my mobo restrictions on IDE stuff (I got 3 drivers, 1 HD, and 2 DVD all IDE)
