string strDate  = DateTime().Now.ToString();

and for both date and time as different do this

string strDate = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();
string strTime = DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString();

DateTime().Now

Doesn't appear to exist, what version of ,NET would that be in? I can only use 2.0

Now is a property, not a method, like asvforce stated.

if you want the timestamp as a unique 64-bit value, you can use:
    long ts = DateTime.Now.ToBinary();
or as a string:
   string ts = DateTime.Now.ToBinary().ToString();
