As for XFX, it is probably the worst video card company around.

Don't talk about what you don't know. Just because you hear crap on a Forum doesn't make it true. Tech-Forums believes that XFX is bad, but hardly anyone on here has ever had an XFX card. Now PNY...thats another story.
Do you even read what you post? First of all, read the title of that topic; The Need To Invest In 2 GB Of RAM Is Not Marketing Hype.
And as if that wasn't enough;
So yea, 2GB RAM Does help.
Now that we got that cleared up, back on-topic.
First of all, nice choice on that monitor. You'll love it, they're some of the best ones out there. Next, no one seemed to notice that you're getting Windows XP 64-bit. Plain and Simple; Don't. There are too many problems with it right now, and hardly any hardware seems to work with it (because there are very few drivers for it).
I agree with Ste that you need a aftermarket Power Supply. I've personally had freezing problems with a bad PSU that came with a case. Even a $30 400W Forton PSU (The one I have, excellent) will be better than the one you have right now. The real thing that matters in a Power Supply is how many Amps it can offer. A 500W PSU might put out 25A while a 400W PSU (my Forton
) puts out 35A. So actually, the 400W is more reliable as well as more pwoerful than the 500W. Go figure.
Everything else looks good. Stick with Leadtek. Its not exactly an attractive card, but its very reliable and with overclocking second to none with it's huge cooler.
