After some thought and consideration here is what I am going to go with, I decided to stay with the 4000+ even though DiabloII suggested against it. Also I kept the heatsink because they didnt have the other one, the 7700. Though I might just look somewhere else do disregard that and imagine the 7700 there. Everything else though looks good I believe.

Motherboard
DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-D nForce4 Socket 939 ATX Motherboard
Processor (CPU)
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ / Socket 939
Video Card(s)
eVGA 256-P2-N376-AX/BX x2
HDD
Hitachi / 80GB / 7200 / 8MB / SATA-150
DVD-ROM Drive
LITE-ON Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE DVD-ROM Drive
Power Supply
Enermax EG701AX Noisetaker 600watt
CPU Cooling
Thermaltake Heatpipe 101, Model "CL-P0006"
CPU to Heatsink Gel
PcToys Arctic Silver 5
RAM
Patriot 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory
Fan Controller
Vantec Nexus 3.5" Multi-Channel Fan Controller (Black)

Any other suggestions let me know.

personally i would go with g-skill pc4400 ram and a 3500+ and either a venus 12, or the zalman, better to wait for quality then rush into crap
also what video cards are those? 6800gts? and hes right, fan controller is only necessary if you have a really noisy fan like the tornado or a ton of fans, besides the fact that Hardcanos pwn *** for fan controllers

Well, fx-55's are probly out of his price range, but the 4000+ and the fx53 have similar prices.

1.) you don't have 2 cards, so why SLI?
2.) i'm begging you! the 4000+ is 2.4ghz, while the 3200+ is 2.0ghz, all you gotta do is get the 3200+, let it burn in for a while, and you can just push the fsb up 40mhz and achieve 4000+ speeds, not to mention the 3200+ runs cooler

I do have 2 cards and the FX-53 is ~200 more, a little out of my price range because I am already a couple hundered over. And I have 4 fans in my case and it helps to be able to turn them down at night or up for gaming and more intensive playing.

That Zalman isnt compatable with the DFI LanParty motherboard for socket 939, matter of fact it isnt compatable with any 939 DFI motherboard.
