im not sure what you mean by your budget. Does that mean that the combined cost of the psu and ram can only be $155US? Also, does it have to be 1 stick of ram or 2 512's? Here is what i think you mean...

1 stick ram 1gb:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145505 Corsair Valueselect $78.50

2 sticks ram 512mb:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440 Corsair Valueselect $76.25

PSU:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103930 Antec TruepowerII 480W $79.99 (not sure for sli)

OR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159054 Coolmax "SLI" 500W $79.99 (not sure on brand)

Anyways, sorry that I put you over your max by about $6.25-$8.50 on each system and if you crunch these huge numbers you come up with a grand total of $25-$34 over your max. Anyways, it doesn't have to be Corsair but that was the cheapest name brand I could find. Hopefully this helped!

Nick
