Thats an awesome system, but I strongly suggest going for a full tower case, instead of the one you picked. The 8800GTX is either going to be a super tight fit, or won't fit at all.

Cooler Master Stacker is an awesome full tower case with tons of room. Its a quite a bit spendier then the one you have picked out there though.

I have two suggestions, the ram and the psu.

1) Maybe spend the extra $20? for the corsair xms2 ddr2-800 4-4-4-12. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034
Not sure if theres much of a difference in performance. but i can personally vogue for the suggested sticks.

2) The psu is overkill imo, and could easily get by with a smaller psu such as this antec 550w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371002

Ya, but if he wants to spend that much on a TT then why not spend that much on a good PSU.
