Default New graphics card

Hey guys, the time has come to build a new pc, but i've been out of the game for a good while now and need some advice on the graphics card front. I was thinking of going for this - Asus Extreme 7600GT 256MB - - but am unsure. Make or model doesnt matter - radeon or nvidia - as long as it's PCIe - and it has to come from the micro direct site linked above. Have a browse round and if you see anything better in the £150 range let me know. Also, here are the links to the other components im going to be getting, if you see any flaws with them or can offer any better suggestions, they'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Plant

HD -
RAM - or maybe

cheers guys!

You'll be plenty happy with a 7600 GT, but a 79 would be even better. Both, however, will give you very good gaming performance for quite a while.
