I also noticed you are getting the barton cpu. You may want to look at this article to see what sort of overclocking these cpu's are capable of.

Ah OK i read the conclusion and i probably read it wrong but I guess the AMD is a good overclocking chip the the P4 is jus tmore practical and AMD really needs to get some new ideas out there if they want to continue competing? Well I'm still gonna get an AMD chip cause they're cheaper but did I get it right?
Edit (afterthoughts): BAH FUCK. I'm so confused now from all your guys different input. Get the Asus with nforce, get the barton, overlcock, get a 9600, sb sucks, lower ram BAH! It hurts. Here are my 3 questiosn that I need answered after having been brainfucked:
How would I go about lowering a 400 mhz to 333?
Couldn't I just overclock my fsb of 333 to 400?
What chip should I get the barton 1.8 ghz or the non barton 2 ghz?
Is it really that much more worth it to get serial ata hdd than an eide and the same goes with is it really tha tmuch more worth it to get ata133 than ata100?
And this is just kinda throwin in there but WTF is up with usb cards and firewire cards with a port on the inside? I mean when and how would you use that?
(ok so it was more than 3 questions dont blame me i'm not good with numbers; i dont major in history)

One more thing if you are gonna go for an nforce2 board get two ram sticks instead of one to take advantage of the special ram feature the name of which escapes me at the moment. Just get two sticks that are half of what you want each.
You can overclock the fsb but going from 333 to 400 is probably not gonna happen. The only cpu that can run at 400 normally is the barton 3200+. The only way to go from 333 to 400 would be to unlock the cpu (and void the warranty) and then lower the multiplier and up the fsb.
