If this is for gaming 6GB will be plenty fine, and more than enough RAM.
As to the power supply, ditch the Ultra brand crap, their rubbish over priced Crap Tigerdirect Branded PSU's.
Sometimes their ok, but for often than not their garbage... could be worse.
But your better off going with a Quality Brand like Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, Silverstone and several others.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
