Default New PC. All compatible?

hey, my friends getting a new pc and well he just ordered it today but he's real worried if everythings compatible, so heres a list of what he ordered...



graphics card





i looked things over and they seemed alright but, we wanted to ask you guys/girls, he doesnt think the 400w psu will be good but from the post about power supplies on these forums it shows a very high performance pc running on very low wattage(273 if im correct)

well is it compatible? thanks...

Yep. Will run good.

For Vista though, I would recommend another stick of RAM that you showed.
