New Build Help

Hi all,
I am in the process of pricing up a new PC, I am a little confused

A) By DDR2 memory classification eg PC2-5300 667mhz

B) PCI Express graphics cards, do I need a special PSU or do ATX AtX Micro come with correct connections.

Hope you can help

a. enter the crucial site and pick your new motherboard from their list - it will tell you the type of memory to get. basically ddr2 started with a fairly low speed 4300 then improved to 5300 then 6300 etc. the faster speed the faster the memory works.
b. you decide which graphic card you want and then look at its specifications. Some require a separate power supply others just plug into the pci-express slot.
