for video cards i would at least get an 9800Pro or better and for the PSU, 350W is cutting it pretty close, and make sure what ever PSU you get that it has atleast 18-20 Amps on the +12V rail

I'm in the UK, but a 256Mb 9600XT was only marginally cheaper than the 9800 Pro...

Good build.

For the Ram- Take a look at Corsair Value Select PC 3200 512mb sticks Cl2.5Corsair VS' ">http://www.newegg.com/app/View...tion=20-145-026&depa=0
Power supply- Need >18A n the 12V line, Id recommend the Tagan 380 or 480.
CPU Cooling- Stock cooler is to be good.

Video Card I would recommend the 9800 pro if you can. But the 9600 pro is the choice of the three.
