Good call on the 8800GTS, but the power supply is too much. Get a hiper 580 or ocz gamesxtream 600.

I have that case and its cool. Its very well ventilated. The stock fans seem to work good and are super quiet. I love it, you made a good choice

The case is huge too. Makes ATX look like a microatx. Lots of room to work with.
