Never heard of Golden Tiger, but it sounds like a cheap psu. It's common for people to spend a lot of money on the rest of their machine and try to cut corners on the psu - Don't.... A gaming machine puts a lot more stress on the psu than a typical home or office machine. A good quality brand 550W psu would be fine for a GTX660, and allows good headroom over Nvidia recommended [i]minimum[/i] of 450W. A good quality 550W psu would have 45amps total on the +12V rail. This is not to be confused with the amps on individual outlets on a modular psu as the rating on the individual outlets is the max for that outlet, and adding the two or four outlets together will always be more than the total for the psu. Additionally, cheap psu's that do have enough amps on the +12V rail still use cheap components. Cheap capacitors don't last. With the RAM go for 2X4GB kit and get the performance benefit of dual channel vs single channel. Avoid models with big useless heat spreaders. Low rise covers are fine and won't interfere with aftermarket coolers. Personally, if the machine is primarily for gaming - I would take the money saved from using an i5 3570 vs i7 3770 and apply that to a GTX660ti. And for only a few dollars more boost the HDD to 1TB, it could save you money in the long term.
