Depends. The OCZ if you don't want to OC, the GSkill if you plan on OCing. For the video card, I'd have to say the 7900GT. I found some charts here:
http://www.adrenaline.com.br/hardwar...adeon_x1800xl/
it's foreign but the charts are very readable. If you notice, the 7800GT is pretty neck 'n neck with the ATI card, so the 7900GT with 4 more pipes should outperform the ATI card a bit.

The g_skill is overall better and the cards are pretty much the same besides the price which ever one is cheaper.

In New Zealand, lol. Ok then, I think I'm going to go with the G.Skill ram and the 7900GT. Thanks all.
