Nice memory.

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

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.

i wouold go with a namebranded PSU, like antec, OCZ, fortron. For 80 dollars Antec Truepower 550W

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.
