um get this ram: - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

PSU like this will be somewhat future proof as well if you ever feel the need to buy a new videocard: - Rosewill Stallion Series Dual Ball Bearing Fan RD500-2-DB ATX V2.2 500W Power Supply 115V/230V CSA, UL, TUV, FCC - Retail

Videocard: - HIS Hightech H195XTQT256DVN-R Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported IceQ3 Turbo Video Card - Retail

slightly more expensive than your 7600GT but performance wise, i would say 3 or 4 7600GT's make a x1950XT

You won't need SLI or Crossfire or intergrated graphics, so reccomend something sturdy and over clockable. - Open Box: ASUS M2N-E AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

AM2+ biostar board, you can take advantage of new cpus in the future if you ever upgrade. - BIOSTAR TA770 A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
Runnin' Stock, Cool, Quiet and Fast
Thermaltake Big Typhoon w/ Scythe Kama PWN Fan
MSI P6N SLI Platinum
