You can get 2x4gb ram for cheaper than $50. Crucial and Kingston sells for around $40-45. Do not get Windows Ultimate. It will not aid in gaming in any way and you probably won't need all its features. Get Win 7 Home Premium and save $85. Use the $85 on a Radeon 7850.

The thing is, your psu will not last as long. You can still send it back.

Quality is more important than wattage.
