I won't be able to overclock until I get better ram. Does the mobo freak out when you change ram?

just set all the ram settings back to auto/default before you pull the old ram, or simply clear the cmos.

also, you can edit your own posts here so you dont need to double or triple post

The P5B Deluxe is an excellent board for overclocking (525+ FSB) as long as you have no intentions of adding a second card for SLI (obivously). There are many owners here that are fans. I would suggest when you change ram to post in the intel ram section and ask for recommendations based on budget. Also as you mentioned, better air cooling is a must if you are going to do serious overclocking. There are also voltage modifications that can be done to the board to handle VDroop deficiencies. Try Xtremesystems.org if you are looking for an faq in that department. The guys over there are hardcore.

Should went for 1GB instead of 512MB x2, IMO.

Looks good though.

If he has a single stick there is always room to upgrade to 2x1. If he has 2x512 then he is stuck with either selling his original ram first or losing a stick altogether and left with 1.5 total.

I'm getting a new rig:
E6300 - $180, OCZ DDR2 800 Platinum Revision 2 (2x1GB) - $250, R600 - ~$500, P5-B Deluxe - $210, 2x300GB WD HDD Raid 0 - Currently Own, PCP&C 610 Silencer - $180, Blugears 7.1 PCI Sound Card - $110, and TT Big Typhoon - $50. With speakers (Logitech Z-5500), a mouse (Logitech MX Revolution), keyboard (Saitek PK02), a monitor (Dell 2407WFP), and case (Antec P180B) it's $2,800 with S/H.
As for your rig, it's nice, the most important pieces are nice and you didn't cheap out, you were just moderate.
