Default New Hardware

I'm going to be upgrading to Vista soon. Most of the bugs are gone! Here is what I plan to upgrade my computer with. Since I didn't get my 4GB memory kit from TigerDirect. *cough*. I'll have to buy it.

GTX-260 (Is it worth it?)

Is the superclocked edition worth $25 more than the standard clocks?

I am going to buy 1066 memory soon. I need help in choosing a kit. I'll upgrade to this down the line. I just want to get the card first.

Meh, 25 for superclocks...you could do that from the Nvidia OC settings.

As far for memory, here's a good one for you:

4GB:

$41

or 8GB:

$100 (I'm crazy, I know)

I need 1066 memory. I'm thinking 25 dollars is more for the company than the overclock. EVGA makes great products. I don't have any second doubts on trusting them.

HD 4870 is slightly faster than the 260 and is cheaper on Tigerdirect.
