Default Will This Work?

I know i know the forum is flooded with these threads, but i have problems trusting myself, so i figured id ask you guys, the all knowing gurus of computers!

Im trying to upgrade my computer for the 2nd time (in anticipation for WAR), and im going to spend about $800, ive got all the parts picked out, all i need to know is: A.) will everything work together? im pretty sure i picked out all the slots right, but a double-check would help B.) Will there be space? i know the ram is pretty tall, but i dont have anything even overhanging it, so plenty of room there, im more worried about the video cards. C.) Will i need a larger power supply? im running a 500W FSP PSU, will that be enough considering im only powering one HDD and 2 CD/DVD drives?) and D.) Any other tweaks you can see? am i spending too much on something? should i be going a different way?

And without further ado, here are the parts ive picked out:

ASUS M3N-HD HDMI AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
EVGA 640-P2-N824-AR GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail x2 (SLI'd)
OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR10664GK - Retail
AMD Phenom 8750 Toliman 2.4GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Triple-Core Processor Model HD8750WCJ3BGH - OEM

obviously the other parts i already have, those are just the ones im upgrading.

And above all else this, to thine own self be true.
