If you are willing to shell out a bit more, get this:

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 470 ATX ATX12V Ver 2.2 470W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, cUL, CE, CB, RoHS - Retail

It says that it has 26A on the 12V, though PCP&C always underrate their PSUs in that respect.

That is just a little to much lol. I might just stick with that fostron because I doubt he will get an 8800GTX lol.

You linked the memory wrong.

It's is highly recommended that you don't use the power supply included with the case. I would suggest a reliable brand, such as:
Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail

You should get past 3GHz, easy, no sweat.
Is that 30 amps on the 12 volt rail b1gapl?

RIGHT ON!!!

but whoever said you can't run an 8800gtx on a Fortron 400w is wrong... Ste showed us an article where they used it with some CPU a while ago (when i was a newbie)
