It only takes the power it needs from the socket. It will not be dragging 700w constant. How ever I wouldn't like to paying the bills with a system that requires a 700w PSU.

So is it good or bad?

I'd say so.

And my power bill really isn't all that high, I've only really got one or two more electronics, my 42" plasma television and my 1000w microwave, yeah, I know, total bachelor pad, but my bill this month was only $120, which I think is just a tad better than the ones my parents used to get, $1,000+ monthly :O

that's a great PSU
yes, it will support an 8800, it will support SLI'd 8800's and dual AM2 CPU's and still won't struggle
