with those high end components - 7800gt, high end amd cpu you really do need a good psu like a antec or thermaltake 450 - 550watt. 1gb should suffice but 2gb is always nice but not neccesary. Get a 3500+, they are very sufficient for todays games etc or if not get a X2 3800+ Toledo. They are really good.
Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.
