Default Component Questions

Um.....heres my situation

-i found a website wer i can just order and then go to their store and pik it up
-the website has a limited amount of memory sticks, the 1gb memory sticks are Hynix or something like that ( are they good ? )
-they dont have a TT Silver Kandalf ( or any full tower ATX cases )
-and is the BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC 256MB good? and does OC mean its already pre overclocked?
-and they dont have a TV Tuner cards
-Do i really need Dual Monitor?- im thinking of just getting a cheap piece of crap for the second monitor, the first one is samsung 17" 8ms 740N
-Oh and before i forget, is it worth paying $60 more to get a X2 4200 (2.2GHz) rather than just getting x2 3800?
And more questions will probably follow.......

never heard of hynix, the 7800GT is one of the top of the line cards out today, dual moniter is a option, i would pay the 60 more and upgrade

Hynix is one of the largest producers.

I used a 9800SE video card with Hynix memory. It overclocked quite-a-ways. Good from what I can tell, but I haven't had a lot of exposure.
