should i spend my $200 on RAM and a 5570? or get the RAM wait for the next salary day and get MSI R5770 hawk?

Im not a heavy gamer, I'm not much of a fanatic when it comes to graphics as long as the game play is smooth even though its not on high settings and im going HDMI so my LCD can only handle certain resolutions below 1280x1024 (i think)

I usually watch alot of x.264(mkv) movies and i do renders. Any comments would help with my decision as im planning on buying the stuff tomorrow.

I would save up and go for the 5770, perfect timing for you since price drops are expected after the release of the GTS 450 series card from Nvidia. Buy those extra mems for your rendering; wait a few weeks; price will definitely drop and there you go buy your new 5770! They expect the 5770 to sell for around 120~130 dollars after the price drop (same as GTS 450)!

My advice would be to go with the new GTX 450 at that price point.
I wouldn't spend the extra money for the enermax-a Seasonic x650 will support dual GPu's just fine.
Seasonic X-650
Ripjaw CL7 1600 MHz
Asus GTX 450

the GTX 450 scale really well in SLi(you can use the hack for your motherboard)
If you don't want to use the hack,then 5750's scale pretty well also.The 5570 is not going to game very well.

I wouldn't spend $200 on RAM if you mean you're getting 6GB? You don't really need 6GB lol. But I'd go with the MSI Hawk 5770.
