awesome so I guess my last 2 questions would be:

Unless it's personal preference, would you guys go with the 8800GTX from BFG or EVGA?

Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail
Newegg.com - BFG Tech BFGR88768GTXOCE GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 OC HDCP Video Card - Retail

Lastly, am I missing anything in my build to have this system up and going?

Save yourself the money, and go for the cheaper EVGA. It will overclock easily, to the BFG's speeds.

if u look sometimes u notice that the xfx's are cheaper than the eVGA and have better speeds too, like the 8600gt/gts, 7600 gt, 7900gs
