Default Upgrades!

Hi I'm new to this forums, and I just wanted to start off by saying it seems like a great forum. I'm thinking of upgrading my PC in two parts: First the graphics card/cooling/power and second the CPU/MOBO/RAM. Atm the only thing I know about my PC is that I've got the Asus M2N68 AM-Plus MOBO and a 350w Cheap-O PSU.

For the first set of upgrades I need the best graphics card and case, both for about 80 pounds and I was thinking:

Antec 902

and for the PSU I was thinking of the CM 650w GX as I don't need anything amazing.
Do you have any suggestions for better products?

For the second part I was thinking:

AMD Athlon II X4 640
Asus M4A785TD-V Evo
2GB Corsair Dominator @ 1600MHz

I would also later buy another set of 2GB "" and a Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler. I'm just a little short on cash atm.

Thanks in advance!

Default Re: Upgrades!

You can find cheaper ram that's cheaper than the dominator stuff. If you're on a budget then I wouldn't go for it
