Based on the current RAM specs, you've got a "Late 2005" G5, one of the dual-core models.
I've always purchased my memory from OWC. Good prices, lifetime warranty on the RAM, and they're a Mac retailer, so everything they sell is going to work in a Mac.
Crucial is also another good source for quality Mac compatible RAM. Whatever you do, don't buy it from Apple - you'll pay through the nose for it.
You definitely need more RAM than you have now if you're running CS3 a lot. I'd recommend that you add at least another 4GB of RAM to what you have now. 4GB will set you back only $100 from OWC.
(see you already got those recommendations, when in doubt, start with the Crucial memory selector to get their recommendations)

I would hope you already have something like a 3 or 4-drive setup already (boot, scratch, data).
Helps to clone a system from time to time, along with running Disk Warrior, and perhaps look into a faster drive(s).
