What is your budget for the RAM?
For the video card, I would go with the XFX 9600GT XXX because of XFX's great warranty.
* Double Lifetime Warranties (this means you are covered a lifetime warranty and if you sell it, they are also covered a lifetime warranty, this card will have a higher resale value)
* Modder Friendly
BFG however also has a lifetime warranty but any modding you do will void the warranty. They do have good customer support as far as I've heard.
Also I've heard that BFG now offers a 100-day trade-in program
, just like EVGA's 90-day step-up program.
