Assuming you're going to want SLI, it looks pretty good!

The only thing I would change is:

1. Crucial Ballistix for your memory. You seem to be on the fence anyway...

2. Maybe consider a Q6600? Your CPU is great, but if you think you would get use out of a quad core... it can't hurt...

Decent Build but if you really plan to use 4GB of RAM your gonna need a 64bit OS, personally I would just get 2GB of the Crucial Ballistix 800 also your kinda of skimping on the CPU compared to the rest of your build, I would get a Q6600 if I were you great CPU overclocks well bring it up to 3.2Ghz easy, Make sure to buy a "G0" Stepping model

also how familiar are you with water cooling it can be hard if your jsut starting out

Yeah... I didn't see that.

I wouldn't buy 4GB of memory if I didn't have a 64-bit OS.

8/10

For having between $400-$500 in the case and PSU, the system doesn't justify that for me.

Why do you need a 750 Watt PSU for a single GPU, a single HDD, and a single DVD-RW??

Scale down on Case and PSU, and buy yourself another 8800GT for SLI.

Not all software will take full advantage of it, but all software should work. Upcoming games, like Crysis, take full advantage of it.

And when software is fully utilizing all four cores, it will be nice to have them at the software's disposal. Plus, with decent, affordable air cooling and a G0 stepping, you can more than likely score a pretty nice overclock with minimal effort.
