I plan on picking it up on Friday along with the ML-L3 remote. I was just wandering if anybody has this speedlight or have used? And if it is worth it or to save my money for something like an SB-600, which I would get but I don't have the cash and I am planning on just getting this stuff then saving up for a D80 OR d200.

If you go for an external flash, you should look for more power than the Sunpack can provide. I'd go for the Nikon SB-600. That would be a better fit for your camera.
If you go for the D80, you can easily pay the flash from the price difference between the D80 and the D200, even a SB-800 (my favorite)!

Thomas is giving you good advice here. If you really must have the camera and flash at the same time then the D80 and SB600 is the ideal combination. There's very little the D200 will do that the D80 won't. It's biggest feature is a faster frame-rate. Other than that it's build materials and Kudos you're paying for.
