link the other ram... and the samsung ram most of the time can be overclocked to above 2133mhz on an amd system, and 2400mhz+ on an intel system.
you dont need to buy an all corsair rig...

Well most of us do prefer Seasonic/Corsair PSUs, Curcial m4 ssd or whatever Sean Webster has to recommend (lol), and Samsung RAM. If u cant take Samsung RAM< get the G.Skill. Very solid and generally a little cheaper than Corsair (at least where i live) I dont really like the tall heat spreaders on the Vengeance anyways

I really dont recommend a GT 210, or any of the graphic cards you mentioned in your OP. I had a GT 210, and it cannot run skyrim. Whatsoever, at any settings. I had to lower the resolution to around 720p. Buy a 7770 or a 7750. They are worth every penny. I would not accept a GT 210 for free. Not even the GT or GTS series, they are just rubbish.

Give this a clear thought, you will need to upgrade the GPU in a really short time if you get the GT/ GTS GPU.
But if you go the HD 7xxx road. You will save yourself a few upgrades along the way. It will still run games at native resolution at decent settings for a long time.

Bought the kingston ram. Looks like I only need a hard drive/ssd and graphics card now.

Am I able to test the system components without a hard drive (perhaps with a usb hard drive? or even install windows on a usb 3.0 drive?)

Also, what I decided to spend around 120 at the VERY most for a graphics card, so I was looking at the 7750/7770's or GTX 550 TI / GTX 560 SE (considered the GTX 650 but it looks WEAK)

For the SSD I'd suggest Crucial 128 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s For the OS and the few main programs. The for a Regular HDD which most of your games programs and files go one is a Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive . I has been marked down $40 already. Plus I've seen people saying this one for a medium budget build. These 2 together shall give you the speed for the OS boot times and some programs.

As for the card I don't know about all 500 plus cards. But I just budget a msi cyclone 460 gtx 1gb off ebay for $80 they are selling on Amazon for over 160 plus.

Find a old HDD somewhere and slap it in for now. I dont think you can run an OS off just the usb without a dedicated hard drive.

Maybe not windows, but I figured I might be able to run ubuntu live off a usb stick or something, just to check that the parts aren't DOA.

Also I should be able to access the bios without an HDD if I'm not mistaken, and I can pop in my GTX 570 just to test.

Edit - I wish I could get a GTX 460 for 80 bucks, but I hate buying used things, gives me bad anxiety to think of things going wrong and being unable to get replacements.

the GTX 650 and the 7770 perform at just about the same level, but i would get the 7770 just because AMD seems to have less driver issues than nvidia.

Just bought a corsair force3 ssd and it booted an I5 2500K sytem in less than 10 seconds. I don't know much about rerliablilty yes but I do know it's fast. Do you know anyone who uses a ultra PSU. they have a 650w that has everything a growing boy wants but I don't know if they last. They do have a lifetime warrantee.
