My personal belief is buy the best power suply you can get. My present one is an Enermax Liberty 500W click here its very quiet too or try a seasonic like click here but 500w is a good minimum for a PSU for a modern pc. RAM from Crucial click here

Get and SLI (Scalable Link Interface) so you can add another Graphics card at a future date if needed

which will be the prefered choice ram as there are quiet a lot of ram with different numbers, ie pc2700, ddr,ddr2,it become difficult to choose,as i do not have any idae about them,as i mentioned my cpu is athlon 64 4000.
