The build itself is good.

The only problem is that this ram is much better than the Corsair and cheaper...

G.Skill HZ's are quite some fine pieces of RAM for the money and everyone will agree.

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

I would reccomend 550W in case 500 is not enough. Maybe 600W would be the best if you are going to add lots of other devices onto it but 550W is the best spot for that rig.

yeah gskill ramis the best i got those hz too. i go a silverstone psu bout 500 -550 too. the only thing that i can suggest is that because its a gaming rig i would ge the 640mb verison of the gts, instead of the 320.
if u cant afford that then maybe get the e6420 instead of the e6600.

I was wondering wich of the two cards I should get, but as I read through the forum I understood that the 640MB version is needed only if you are going to use a big LCD like a 22" or more. Am I right, or not?

well it isn't really the size of the screen which is an issue rather the resolution which you are using on the screen that affects RAM usage
