Nice memory.

Dunno but probably a more powerful PSU ( like 550 W ) will keep you upgradable longer ? But that's just my personal opinion.

DFI Lan party UT NF4 Ultra
AMD Opteron 146 2.0 Mhz @ 2.8 GHz
OCZ Gold Edition 2x512 MB DDR 500 timing 2.5-3-3-8 @ DDR 560
XFX GeForce 7600 GT 256 Mb GDDR3
Antec Lanboy Mini Tower Case
Antec True Control 550W ATX2.0 PSU
Maxtor 300 GB 7200 RMP SATA 16Mb Cache

300 dollars for some overpriced corsair ram wow. Just get the nice g.skill for 150 you could even buy 2 and get 4GB's :freak: but why would you need that.

Antec TPII 550W

You should also look at Newegg, they have the best customer service and usually the best prices.

Yeah go with the antec 550w or a good OCZ modstream or powersrteam, i dont know if a 450w fortron will run a X1900XTX but it's only $50

i hear pretty bad things about Ultra, and i think on one of the stickies about buying parts it says the ultra is not one of the brands recommended.
