(Two 512MB sticks because this way you can use dual channel mode which makes memory processes much faster. The motherboard above has four DDR slots, so you still have plenty of room to expand.)

Just examples. Newegg is the only thing I use, so I'm not really familiar with retailers that deliver to that area.

Well, I though you were upgrading that, too. I wouldn't recommend sticking with a 350W PSU for that setup. 400-450W minimum for this - I recommend 500W+.

try micro direct or planet micro.
there is a new site i found the other day and had exellent service from them, CCL COMPUTERS.COM.
all of the above give good service.
you could try ebuyer, but i had a nightmare with them last week and will no longer use or recomend them, i believe they are still having trouble.
