If you're going for cheap as possible get a gaming graphics card, not a workstation graphics card. I'd go with memory from a reputable manufacturer like Crucial, Kingston, Corsair, or similar which will cast maybe $5 or $10 more. Same for the power supply, there are much more reputable manufacturers in the same price range if you go with lower wattage (you don't need 730 watts anyway). I'm not a fan of Biostar, for the same price there are boards from Gigabyte and MSI (much better in my opinion).
