So i started building my comp again and heres what I ordered so far.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester 2.0GHz Socket 939
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939
ATI Radeon X1600 PRO 512MB PCIe

My question is this, I want 2 gigs of ram but what brand should I get? I have about 230$ for ram. I WILL BE GAMING

Next is what power supply...I would like a led blue with fan if possible(To go with the theme) but if not then Oh well, I just want to know what a good buy is.

Thank you in advance

Will

Well first off, 512MB of memory in that GPU is such a waste.

Here's some pretty good OCZ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210

I can't help you on the PSU, although I have an Ultra X2 550W that's been treating me alright, it has a blue LED model. Although I've heard it isn't a very good brand mine's been fine.

As far as I know most if not all games are only utilizing 256MB of memory on the video card, and especially on that particular video card, which won't cut the mustard when the games that need 512MB start coming out.
