Get 2gb of value ram instead.
Get a different brand of 6800gt (some will cost around $250)
Get an Acer 8ms display ($40 cheaper and the same)
Why don't you get a better Aspire case that comes with a better power supply?

All psu included with cases are junk. eVGA is the cheapest and you can't get any cheaper if you want pci-express. Don't even get 2GB, 1GB of low latency ram would be best. Sound Blaster Audigy perhaps, would take the load off cpu and improve performance
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...
