look into the ocz memory but it will be more than 150 but its worth it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16820146920R and as for a PSU any supply that is 450watt or maor by a grood brand will be suppicient unless your really planning to overclock to hell and crank out some power, then go with over 550watt

here is the RAM you should get. it uses samsung TCCD chips
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146890
I have the same stuff and mine goes all the way to DDR640. I'm currently running it at DDR520 @ 2.5-3-3-7 timings

as for a psu... a high quality psu is a must when planning on OC'ing. I'd suggest a Seasonic S12-500 or S12-600
for a bit cheaper you can get the sunbeam nuuo 550w.
