Good build...however I would drop the case to a cheaper one and then use the money for a CPU cooler. Your going to need it if you expect to overclock very high. Since you've got the DS3 and G.Skill RAM and a C2D i'm guessing your debating it.

may I suggest this ram as well instead? It's much better than the NQ's. I have 2GB of it in my computer right now.

im not sure, and im sure someone around here does, but i think that 520w is gonna be a little low for an 8899gts, and an e6600. But i may ne wrong, and i don't have the time right now to double check. Only possible problem i can see.

Since it is a pretty good quality PSU, I see no problem in using a 520W. With 2x8800s in SLi, I might consider a more powerful one...
