From experience I wouldn't buy through Tigerdirect unless it's your only option.

I also would get Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB &#40;2 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 &#40;PC2 5300&#41; Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
instead of the kingston.

420W would be enough. Go for 450W if you are concerned.

Newegg has better prices and easy for returns on faulty hardware.
