I'd go with a different video card, maybe one with GDDR3 compared to the GDDR2 on the 7300GS. And between everythign your ordering, it should come with all the cables you need

DDR3 video cards are kind of out of my price range.

Maybe I can help you find something, what is your price range for the video card? What was the 7300 you had picked out priced at?
