Thx for the help. I am having some strange problems and I think it is my PSU do these readings indicate anything to anybody:
And Vcore for my Athon 2400+--->1.632

You could be right, but I wouldn't discount the PSU, depending on the ratings per voltage rail. I had a crap 350W that would crash the whole system everytime it tried to run a 3D app, and the system was almost identical to BossHoss, except it only had 1 HDD/Optical Drive, no fans, and only 1 stick of RAM.
If even one of the voltage rails is underpowered, that would cause all kinds of random crashes.
He could also try <A HREF="http://www.memtest86.com" target="_new">MemTest86</A> and see if it RAM related, as bad RAM causes all kinds of weird errors as well.
XP2200+, Abit NF7, 1GB Dual-Channel DDR333, ATI R9800PRO 128MB, TT PurePower 420W, Samsung 120GB, Maxtor 120GB, LG DVD+-R/RW, WIN2K PRO SP4
I don't disagree with you Spark, but unless he doesn't have 15a on the 12v rail I can't see a problem with these readings. He's just not drawing that much. Never-the-less, power supplies have died like this in the past.
Abit IS7 - 2.8C @ 3.4ghz - Mushkin PC4000 (2 X 512) - Sapphire 9800Pro - TT 420 watt Pure Power
Samsung 120gb ATA-100 - Maxtor 40gb ATA - 100
Sony DRU-510A - Yellowtail Merlot
I put very little faith in the rail ratings of power supplies. For example, I've never overloaded a power supply, yet my Antecs would start dropping voltage at less than 70% of their rated capacity. Antec later added the "True Power" series using the word "True" in reference to everything else they sold being a lie.

And one more question, I am upgrading to this:
MSI Neo plat 2
2x512mb kingston hyper x
2xseagate 160gb for raid 0
Dual layer lite on dvd-rw
Am I gonna need a better PSU for my new setup?

With these voltages sitting well inside a +/- 5% operating window, I'd say you were doing pretty good. And better on the low side than the high, since power dissipation will be a little lower overall in the regulators/switch mode PSU's to supply VCore and VDIMM
