    The CPU will be alright, but 1GB RAM is a bit thin these days, you should really have at least 2GB. Fortunately RAM is uber cheap these days. As for the power supply, 450W might be a bit tight, it depends who made it. If it's a cheap brand, then it certainly won't suffice, you'll need to upgrade to something decent like a 520W Corsair. if it's a quality brand unit you have then you might be alright, but no promises.

    Right now you best bet is the 8800GT. You will need to spend that extra $30, you will regret it if you don't. ATI is brewing some new cards for the holiday season so if you wait you might be able to get a better product for roughly the same price. When buying nVidia stick with EVGA, XFX, or BFG.
