Drop the 7900 and get a 7600GT and with the money saved, instead of the 1GB Value, get 2GB of the good stuff.

If you do some digging you might find some OEM item and save some money to use on that RAM upgrade.<br>
For example, I would think the Audigy 2 OEM would do well for about $75<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16829102178" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102178</a>

Yeah I'd recommend getting a 7600 or something good budgetwise and get better ram in case you want to overclock in the future. Theres this really good G.skill ram (2 x 1 gig) at newegg with really good timings but its always out of stock <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">
