What programs would not benefit having Dual Xeons?
Honestly I would recommend getting a quad core chip if you want more processing power. The motherboards that support Xeon (s771) chips aren't usually very overclockable or optimized for gaming.
And for the video card...if you can afford it the 8800GTX has the best performance AND image quality of all the cards you listed.
As for that power supply...it looks quite good. Actually what's a bit strange is that it looks almost IDENTICAL to my thermaltake supply. It would be interesting to see how it looks inside.
