I'm working in US dollars here. The 8800GT, where available, is anywhere between $229 and $279 and performs right under the 8800GTX with a very negligible difference, like 1-5 fps max, and overclocking will generally close that gap. It's tons better than the 8800GTS and costs about the same and is a lot cheaper than that 8800GTX.
Your cpu will not be an issue as far as bottlenecking's concerned, as I mentioned though, try and switch out that OCZ GameXStream power supply with a Corsair 520HX, it will serve you better later on and is a much more stable power supply, despite the 80 lesser watts you'll be getting.
