I recently inherited a barebones PC and need some DDR2 667 PC2-5300 RAM and a PCI-e x16 3D vid card for it so that I can replace my current gaming system.  Anyone have any used hardware (I wouldn't turn down new) lying around that fits the bill?

Oooh!  What do you want for it?

It appears you're correct about the card, but what do you want for your RAM?

If I get a big enough rebate check, I may be buying a new card.  If not, I'm taking one of these generous souls up on their offer.

What's everyone's opinion on which of these is the best bang for the buck?

If you are going to spend $80

I'd go with:

It's what I bought, and I have no complaints.
