When I next get enough money i will get a more powerful psu (probally a Antec TruePower 480W PSU) so i can get anouther harddrive (in raid 0) and a dvd rw. I know i am on the limit of what the psu can handle, so i would not recomend such a low wattage psu (it came with my case) but i will recomend antec psu's as they come with 4 3 pin cables that are designed for case fans, and alter the speed of them.

what are the other latencies of the ram??

The Geil Value Ram has worked great for me. Cant wait till I scarp up some money and get a second one for Dual Channel... I think my mobo has dual channel?

Im pretty sure your mobo has dual channel ram. So your getting 2 256mb to equal 512mb? Make sure its PC3200.
