Hi there. Could you be a little more specific with exactly what PSU you are getting, like what wattage?

And the 8500GT is not a good card. Exactly what kind of gaming do you plan to do? If you do not what to play any DirectX10 games then I could recommend a cheaper DirectX 9 card that will outperform the 8500GT. If you really want to play DirectX 10 games then I would go with nothing lower then a 8800GTS 320mb or the game will be completely unplayable.

Everything looks good but I do not know that much about dual boot requirements so you might need something more.

Thanks for the reply, Jackflash. My case comes with an Antec 450W power supply. Should that be adequate for that card? Is the memory I quoted decent? I don't mind spending a little more money in that department if required. I've tried not to cut any corners here. Any suggestions for improvement would be greatly appreciated.

Is the make of the PSU also Antec because a lot of the time they give you crap power supplys with cases? If you have a crappy PSU then a lot of the time when they fail they fry your whole system. If it is not an Antec then I would strongly recommend buying another one.
