I just fugured that if I was going to spend the money I should go with something better. My better being something that might cost more. I don't guess that is always the truth. You said to go with some OCZ ram, would this be good enough? I'm sorry for all the questions, back home I had a friend that stayed on top of everything and since I have moved away I don't talk to him anymore.

I was looking at the psu that you recommened. Is 480w enough for anything that I might add later?

One more question, the video card you guys say to go with the 7800GT or GTX. On Newegg's site they have a couple of different brands, is one better than the other?
