    If you're getting two 1gb kits(2 2x512mb kits), then it will take all 4 memory slots, which is bad on athlon cpus, since it will force a 2t memory command rate. It's much better to use only two memory dimms, so if you want 2gb, then get a 2gb kit(2x1gb), like this.

    That ram also has good timings, so it's fast.

    Also, I wouldn't suggest getting a xion psu, I'd suggest antec, enermax, pc power and cooling, ocz, seasonic, fortron(fsp group), etc.
    I'd probably suggest these for the same price.
