Get this power supply instead:
Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN, RoHS, 12cm FAN, version 2.2, 2 SATA, 20+ 4 pin, PCI Express, 400W Power Supply - Retail
...your system, doesn't require alot of power.

Don't get a Windsor. Go for Brisbane. They run much cooler.
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail

And yes, that ram is a better choice.

Everything else, looks good.

Default Re: Compatability

Will it hurt to just go with the bigger PSU for upgrades later on i might need the power for?
Haven't delt with any Sli stuff yet...Is the anything I have to do to run one video card in a Sli board? Or is just like a board that isn't Sli and just throw the card in and thats it..?

Just throw in the card, that's it, and it will run.

If you have the extra money, I would go with the EVGA 7900GS. The 7600GT is a good card, but like I said, if it's an option, go with the 7900GS.

Everything looks compatible
