Haha, that Ultra is gonna be more than half the amount of the entire PC.

If you are so inclined to drop the money for an Ultra, then by all means get it. It's the best thing out there right now, but the 8800GT is a great card at half the price. It's up to you man, if you have the money get it, and I don't think you should have a problem fitting it.

*INTEL Quad-Core Q6600 GO (yet to OC...)
*EVGA 8800GT 650/950
*2X 150GB WD Raid 0
*22" Gateway HD LCD Display
*Delta 700W PSU

Good luck.
I wasn't recommending him to SLi. I was pointing out that doing an SLi for the 8800GT would make it perform nearly as well as a single Ultra.

But having 1 8800GT will perform nearly as good as the GTX.
