Looks great... you should have got this instead:

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N800-TR GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Cheaper and it'll run cooler because 8800gt's run a bit hot with that single slot cooler

Same with the Corsair 650tx... In fact you can get a PC Power and Cooling 750w for less than a PC Power and Cooling silencer 610.... which is quite odd..
