I would get the 2GB model because it's faster. Then buy another 2GB later on, if you wish. 2GB is a good start.

What OS are you going to be using and what are you planning on using the computer for?

2GB is about the sweet spot for gaming on XP, and the OC'd Corsair is faster.

4GB is a good amount for Vista and will give you plenty of leg room for video and picture editing. Games will also run nicely.

You're missing the motherboard too. Get this:

ASUS Striker Extreme LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX The Ultimate Gaming Motherboard - Retail
http://www.clubit.com/product_detail...emno=CA4802609

CORSAIR XMS2 DHX 2GB (4 x 1GB) DDR2-800 CL 5-5-5-18 Dual Channel Quad Kit Retail
http://www.clubit.com/product_detail...emno=CA4330634

I say, get rid of the Physics card and go all out with the 8800GTX. SLI them if you have to. It will smoke anything with Physics. Damn, look at the heat pipes on that motherboard. Looks like a refrigerator, lol.

That is an EXCELENT system for gaming. However, with an 8800 GTX, the PhysX Processor isn't really needed. The 8800 has one built in.
