Were is a good place to buy 3/4 radiator hose and what temp rating do I need?

If you using it for a sandrail you can get the hose from any good auto parts store. The temp rating on these hoses will hold what ever your motor can throw at it. And as a side note there are different manufactures of hoses and some are of lesser quality is don't skimp on quality, a few bucks extra here is better then blowing up a cheap hose in the dunes.....

i am at the intention to use heater hose myself, 1" tho, and i will put a braid over it as well if its possible, if not i will use some other hose, but heater hose works on heaters at same temp as car, so just dont put behind your head, as antifreeze injected into the skin can be deadly...

Antifreeze isn't too good on your liver... You can also find smaller prebent hoses at an auto parts store. 3/4 is real small. What size of motor is it?
