the ram you suggester is kinda expensive, i need 2 gbs, some good ram but 400$ is kind of alot...
I would recomend you stay away from the Ultra PSU. I have heard very bad things about them. I would recomend the Sunbeam NUUO 550w. I have used NUUO PSU's in my last three builds and have had good luck with them. They are also quite cheep for the quality you get.
Also, just to clear somthing up: All Core 2 Duo CPUs are NOT Conroes! The E6600 and E6700 are Conroe core CPUs, and the E6300 and E6400 are Allendale CPUs. The diferance between the two cores is that the Allendale has 2MB shared L2 cache while the Conroe has 4MB shared L2 cache. Just thought I would clear that up
