I was originally thinking of spending my $230 on a 7950GT, but i really need to remove the RAM/Pagefile bottleneck on my system. Is the 7950GT more Worthwhile?

Firestix only if you get the CAS version. The ones on Newegg right now are CAS5, and likely don't have the Micron D9's.

What's the budget for the RAM?

I'd get the ram, and wait out until there are afforable DX10 cards on the market (sub $300... like 8600 or so??)

For $230 or so, I'd get this kit:
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) $219.99 (not Microns, but decent RAM, and DDR2 800). The Firesticks are out of stock, and are more expensive).

I would stay with the video card u have now, get the Firestix, than buy a mid range DX10 card, that would be what i would do.

Everyone I talked to said the Firestix at NewEgg have Micron Tech. in them.

Firestix go for more than $230. And the current kits on Newegg are the CAS5 ones... not as good as the CAS4 kits.

Check out the G.Skill I linked in my previous thread. Pretty good RAM for your budget.
