Get a larger PSU...say an OCZ Powerstream 520 watt, maybe even a 600 watt one. Id switch the motherboard to a DFI Lanparty nforce4 SLI mobo, its much better than the Asus mobo. Also, the eVGA 7800 might be better than the leadtek and the gigabyte ones.

And where is your proof of this? Leadtek happens to make the best 6800GT for overclocking (mine is at 420/1150 with the stock cooler, never has passed 68 degrees C!!), it has a great all copper two-slot cooler that covers the GPU, the RAM, and backside. The AN8-SLI is actually the only motherboard that will fit two of them for SLI, so if you plan on a different motherboard, then get eVGA. Also, if I were you, I would just get a single 7800GTX because it it faster than two 6800ultras in SLI. If you do get the 7800GTX, then I would get eVGA, because this time around the Leadtek one does not impress me; it just has the basic cooler, and actually comes clocked slightly slower than stock speeds.
