get a Antec 550Watt 2.0 if you can its a good PSU neighbor has one if you cant get that then go for a FSP Group 450Watt I have it running a 7800GT smoothly so they are both under a 100USD

I guess maybe this will do instead? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...55#DetailSpecs It has one 120mm and an optional 120mm. That good enough cooling though? 450 PSU

You do not need to get uber OCing RAM since you stated you wont be overclocking a bit, I would get valueselect ram, 4x 512 sticks Corsair, they suck for OCing, but I dont OC and they work wonders for me.

No. Fast dual channel ram makes all the difference for me. Plus I've had problems with my 1gig valueram.
