...... hmm you still want SLi..... most people here will tell you not to.... and i'm one of them lol.. heres why you said "in the future" right? when you throw that extra 8800gts 320mb in there... it make it sorta pointless... because by then you can upgrade to something better... but since its your PC.... i'd say the 680i because its really right now at $153

am i missing anythin.. and will all these run properly?
That's lookin' good man. A little bit of suggestions though.

I would recommend a stronger heatsink for the Q6600, like the Tuniq, especially when overclocking.

Although the Ballistix are a bit better than Patriots, it's not by much. So you can save money by going with the Patriots, for less:
ClubIT Product - Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 EPP, SLI Ready Dual Channel Kit Retail PDC22G6400LLK

I was going to suggest you get the regular non-overclocked 8800GTS, but seeing as the superclocked is only about $5 more, I guess it's ok.
