Default RAM, Graphic Card

Ok so im just about to buy a new computer, and i was wondering what RAM and graphics card i should buy, and i want u to vote after looking at these links.
RAM
If you think this ram is the best vote 1 RAM: http://www.computeralliance.com.au/p...x?qryPart=2679 (dual channeled)
RAM 2: http://www.computeralliance.com.au/p...x?qryPart=3214 (dual channeled)
RAM 3: http://www.computeralliance.com.au/p...x?qryPart=4488 (this is just a big stick of 1 gig)

Now for Graphics Cards

Graphic 1: http://www.computeralliance.com.au/p...x?qryPart=5050
Graphic 2: http://www.computeralliance.com.au/p...x?qryPart=5018

(is graphic 2 worth the 30 bucks more? (aussie dollars)

The Gigabyte video card has a higher clock rate which means it's faster, but doesn't have a fan on top. So wierd. I would get the Gigabyte one.

I guess out of those choices of RAM, the Geil one looks fine. There are better choices than that, but probably at a higher cost.

Get 2 of them and put them in dual channel. It's the best RAM configuration.

Are you using an Intel or AMD motherboard? AMD motherboards generally use PC3200 while Intel go nuts with all kinds of different speeds.

I would stick with the PC3200 (Geil RAM in your link) for best compatibility. I'm using the PC3200 as well. You won't regret it. It's pretty good.
