Get an OCZ 700W GameXStream PSU instead.. Thermaltake's PSUs aren't that great.

Yea, IC prices are still high and Team raise the wholesale price

But... there's a free gift with the memory, to be revealed this w/e, which makes it worth the extra $10

I'd say don't get that X1650 Pro for $209, get a X1950 Pro from Best Buy, it's only $199.99 which is a little less expensive bu the X1950 Pro is better than the X1650 Pro: http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=466&card2=447

As for the RAM? Well, that Patriot in particular have D9s but my experience with Patriot RAM have not been that good (incompatibility issues mostly) so I'd say spend a little extra and go for the Team Group-Team Xtreem DDR2 800. At least I haven't heard anyone saying bad things about Xtreem memory.

But don't forget, X1950 Pro is better and just about the same price.
