Just sell those DDR2 sticks and your budget with reused h/w is more than adequate for a solid DDR3 platform ^^ The sun has gone down on DDR2 platforms and all current/incoming ones would be DDR3 based

$344AR before any after market cooling/fans

Definitely get more RAM. 4gb of ram is minimum nowadays for gaming and other usage.

i would suggest 4gb of ram instead of 1. Batuchka's build looks good.

For the same price as the 3 x 1GB RAM you can get 2 x 2GB and your system will run better.
