Default Made My Choice, advice please.

Im choosing this...

Point Of View 8800GTS 320MB EXO Extreme Edition 575/1800 PCI-E

and

OCZ StealthXStream 600W PSU - SLI Ready ATX2.2 12cm LED Fan

That be alright ? I still do ideally need a E6750/6850 or Quad Core.
Although not many things use the Quad Cores yet, and the E6850 is alot quicker on everything that only utilises dual core. But that will be for my next birthday Ages away.

eVGA for sure, don't go with a manufacturer you'll regret.

E6850 is not worth it unless you're only overclocking, it's got that x10 multiplier, if you wish to go c2d, pick the e6750.

get an 8800 with standard clocks (500/1700) and overclock it yourself, saves you money and it works easily

my standard EVGA 320MB is at 645/945x2 right now

Well my freind at school actually bought a point of view 8800GTS 320 and has had no troubles or problems with it at all. So from that experience it would be perfectly adequate and relaible.

I've got that and its fine, only thing I hate about it is that its not modular, but its cheaper then a modular one anyways

the cables are nice and sleeved and the fan pushes a whole lot of air
