Gotta agree about the PSU never heard of that brand before so I wouldnt trust it.

RAM go with DDR3 1600mhz 1.5V, DDR3 1333 is slower

What is your budget and what are you going to be using this rig for?

Yes the PSU will give the computer "life" but it could also kill it. The reason you want a good quality PSU is that if you buy a cheap one it has a greater chance of failing and taking other components with it, such as the motherboard. Spending a little more up front will save you some headaches in the future I would get this one.

You could make it 4GB RAM -- that will make things easier and a bit fast for you.
