Yeah these are great idea's, ATI is currently down right now. A 6600GT heavily outpeforms the x700 pro, and is very close to the x800 pro's.
Yeah and between that corsair and good ram, their will be a 2% difference basicly, so it's not worth it to get much better ram. If your trying to be cheap just cut down the RAM speed than up FSB to make it PC3200 speeds again and you got a nice CPU overclock than.
Also, I would reconsider that motherboard, a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D will be slightly more expensive but worth it.
