Yeah, I'm thinking the 300W doesn't really have enough juice to run the 6800gs.

I'm buying the 6800GS and I bought a 500W Antec.

For a nice, affordable power supply, chech out Fortrons on newegg.

Edit: I was gonna say, you could go down to 1gig of ram and spend the money on a nice power supply.

Yes you will definetley (sp*) need to get a new psu. I recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954

Everyting else looks ok not the best but you'll be ok with that card trust me.

The power supplies that come with cases are usually no good. Unless you buy an antec case w/psu or something.

I don't know of any better/faster way of transferring components from one case to another.

Bonehelm took care of the canadian store for ya...
