'Just' 256, but it is a great card. I play games on highest settings with it flawlessly.

You may want to consider a Hiper type R 580w as you live in the UK. It is a beautiful PSU, that is extremly reliable and quiet.

I personally wouldn't get corsair XMS, I would get this: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aMY_2d057_2dOC

Looks good. Get a rounded IDE cable though.
