Is that patriot ram a good combo with this mobo

That should work fine, however, i would recommend getting an amd 64 3200+ as the cores will be the same, the only difference will be the divider, and you could use the extra towards getting a better motherboard, system stability is important for overclocking and gaming.
edit: i would also second opting for the pci express slot if your budget can accept it. That will definitely allow your system to last a lot longer.
