thank you!
that helps me a ton!
if anybody is still intrested in posting on this topic i will still be checking it for a few more days. Besides, the more opinions there are, the better chance of me (and others who are trying to do the same thing) getting a better bang for the buck.

To make the ram go faster, you need to overclock your mobo and CPU.

Get the 3400 and some samsung ram or something, and you should be able to hit 2.4 ghz. That will offer better peformance (3800 speeds)

Don't get the 3400+ Its not that good rather get a 3200+ 939 , Asus a8n sli deluxe. the ram will run asyn with your fsb so you will need to overclock your cpu to make the ram run at 4400(550MHZ or 275Mhz) and to overclock a 3200+ to 275*10 = 2750Mhz from the stok 2000Mhz will require some nice cooling good air Thermal right or something like that will do..If you can water cooling.
