Default this sound good for new parts?

xfx 8800gt 670mhz core
xfx 780i mobo
xeon 3220 quadcore 2.4g
g.skill 2gx2 ddr2 800mhz???
themaltake 850w PSU??

Though I like the Rosewill RX750 power supply also, it looks really nice.

Do these parts look pretty decent?

The xeon 3220 is not cheap. Why not get a q6600?

Yea really. Server procs are known for their longevity and other great things, but for a desktop and those parts, you should go with that Q6600. Best price/performance currently IMO.

What are you exactly using the rig for? If it's for gaming, you should put towards the money you save towards an 8800GTS G92 or more memory.

corsair 750TX trounces both power OP mentioned.
Side by side to the corsair is the PC Power and Cooling 750 Silencer along with a Silverstone 750.
