Corsair ram isn't necessarily the best. THose were on sale a couple of weeks ago at $116 and than raised to $121 at newegg, now its just outrageous. I'd rather get CZ Enhanced Latency 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Copper Heatspreader Model OCZ4001024ELDC-K for $128. Wait for ATI if you want. Pretty decnet psu, manufactured by aspire too.

First got a computer 4 years ago. Windows ME. Got second hand computers with different operating systems from my family members to play around with...

5 out of 5 eggs, plus the case looks killer...looks good to me.
