The dollar to performance ratio from ddr2 to ddr3 for gaming is ridiculously high. You would see no real measurable performance gain in gaming. Save your money and put it in a GPU. That is where you will see the most performance for your dollar in a gaming environment.

I think a 600w would do the job well.

any psu from seasonic, corsair, antec, XFX, or Thermaltake Toughpower would be good choices too. Cooler master psu's are decent at best.

Do some research on here and check out which 6950's unlock best. http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/...ng/vidcard/159

If your running 1080 you will be ok with 1gb vRAM. If you have higher res or multi monitor you want the 2gb vRAM.
