Oh man, that system will be blazing fast. Of all the 2GB RAM available, I feel the one you picked out works best. That power supply will give you plenty of headroom for now.

I was going to get the Ultra X-finity bad I read some bad r eview of it failing, but Xion has been around since 2002 and they specialize in making cases and power supplies and nothing else. They are owned by the same company that makes NZXT. This is the best power supply I have seen so far . Its either this or an Antec.

Antec also makes excellent power supplies. I trust my parts with an Antec power supply.

Fortron Source (FSP Group) AX500 500w PSU. The best budget PSU in the market. $91.00 at newegg.com.

OCZ Powerstream is good for the money.

PC Power & Cooling = The best of the best.

I'm building a similar setup but with 3 HDDs and chose the OCZ powerstream 520W. I found it at Monarch for $120. With this PSU at least you get 3 adjustable rails which may come in handy when you plug in that second card.
