Default If you could criticize this please..

Alright, I know you're all sick of Core 2 Duo (Conroe) threads, but well, I'm going to be building a computer hopefully end of this month or the beginning of November. Also, if you could suggest some RAM for my setup that would be great. I'm planning on playing video games and watching movies as you may possibly tell by my video card. I'm not going to be picking up a monitor, keyboard or mouse at this time, I will get those later. Oh and I was looking for the Antec Truepower 2.0 but I couldn't find it so if you can possibly pick a PSU or tell me if the one that I picked is sufficient that would be superb.

Here is what I was thinking.

Thanks for all the help!

Well see that's the thing, I'm not having a set budget. But what I was thinking of doing was buying 1GB stick now and then getting another stick before the end of the year. If you could suggest some RAM that would be great.

EDIT: How is that PSU? I've heard that Fortron are good, but I want to make sure that that PSU will handle that system and won't die on me within a few months.

Anyone have any other suggestions on RAM? Also what do you think about me getting 1GB stick now and then waiting a few months and getting another 1GB stick. Is it worth the wait or should I just try and scratch some more cash together and get 2GB right now?

Get crucial, they're the best if money isn't much of an issue.
