    What do you mean 'sync up all the time'? generally this is automatic and almost instant. have you ever seen your contacts in gmail? Using the right account?
    Try this, add a contact in the gmail web interface and see if it shows up on the phone within a few minutes.
    I've changed my ROM many times and depend on the gmail sync which has always worked.

    Are you sure that the Settings/DateSync/Google is set right? you might click it off and then back on. I just set mine to Off, cleared the Applications/Contact cache and made sure that all my contacts were gone. Then turned on DataSync and they all came back.

    Worse comes to worse you might clear your contacts cache and create them from Gmail. They should appear on the phone.

    Could I make a new account and try again? or is there a way to change contacts from google to phone so I could sync them with my pc?

    It should mean that your contacts are sync'd but if you don't see them then something is wrong. If you create a contact in gmail does it then appear on the phone? That is how is should work. I had one ROM that didn't sync contacts so I don't use it but all the others from 1.5 to 2.1 have worked as expected. I depend on that sync so I can easily switch ROMs or phones.
