Default Question About Ram Compatibility with ASUS Mobo NForce

Hello, after all the kind advice from my last post i have changed my computer specs. I am happy with my HD, DVD/W (I want a fast burner), Processor, and even my case (though i wish i could find it without a power supply).

My Problem is I have chosen the

ASUS "K8N-E Deluxe" NVIDIA nForce3 Chipset Motherboard For AMD Socket 754 CPU -RETAIL =$144
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

I changed from the ASUS "K8V SE Deluxe" K8T800 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 CPU -RETAIL
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...131-490&DEPA=1

I know that Giel Sticks dont work well with the latter Mobo, but the ASUS website says nothing about this ram not working with the K8N nForce3. What Rams would you guys suggest? Something like 2.5, im looking to get Two 512. (If someone could explain the difference between unbuffed and buffed, difference between $200 Ram and $88 Ram ect...)
I Have looked my self, but i feel putting down the Ram i have found not to be worth the effort, because i feel i have only a cursory understanding of Ram.

My Build Specs (better cooling system maybe?)
