Ebay is the way to go, I bought about half my parts off ebay. I got a 7900gs asus for $149 which is like 35% off retail, but anyway, the system looks good, but I agree about the RAM upgrade. Whats the computer for?

2 gig modules are expensive now though. You might want to buy two one gig modules. It will save money, and when 2 gig modules are cheaper and you want 6 or more gigs in four slots you can still sell your 1 gig modules for a decent price. Plus with 2 sticks you can run them in dual channel.

Your motherboard only supports up to DDR2-800 RAM(http://www.intel.com/products/mother...5wh/index.htm), so getting DDR2-1066 sticks would be useless-- unless you use it to overclock (higher RAM than supported=no RAM holding back for OCing). But, intel boards don't allow you to overclock, ergo buying DDR2-1066 RAM would be useless to you.

Either, get a non-intel motherboard, 1066mhz RAM, and overclock, or just stick to what you had.
