okay, for one, DEFENITELY go with the 7800GTX,
secondly, I'd say go with the 2048MB DDR400 ram, because the processor, while better, will not make that much of a difference.

Get the X2 4200+ actually you could save money and go with the X2 3800+ and go with the 7800GT !! because the GTX isnt worth the extra 100 bucks and doesnt really offer a big impovement, 2GB's is good for a new machine
