Default prices on these parts after rebates at fry's electronics

alright I am looking in the fry's electronics add and they have the following items with rebates:
1. 512mb pc3200 DDr memory 400mhz by OCZ for 60 bucks each or 1gb (2x512mb) of K-Byte pc3200 400 mhz ram for 120bucks so they are both the same price

2. 80gb ultra Dma/100 seagate 8mb 7200rpm for 30 dollars but I dont know if it is SATA or not. THats even cheaper then the 120gb seagate at best buy for 70 because for 60 I can get two and have 160gb.

3. then the last thing is a 425watt powersupply for only 10 bucks. Doesn't list a brand name but is there much difference on these?

anyways what do you guys think? Any of it worth getting?

Cheap PSU's are cheap for a reason and that makes them unstable and not worth it Don't skimp on the PSU
