That will work great. It provides 35A on the dual 12V rails which is more than enough for your future 8800GTS.

yay!! I'm glad I didn't order that other one.

This one also has a lifetime warrenty, and its modular, the cables are super thin.

Yeah, the new Ultra PSUs are actually pretty good. Get it if you want the modular cables, but for even cheaper actually you can get this much better Antec. Same wattage, but instead it has a single +12V rail with 42 amps on it, which is a ton. Also better efficiency.

The Antec TruePower Trio 550 PSU in your link freestyler has three 12V rails. Hence the name "TruPower Trio.

Probably the most reliable source for PSU reviews.

In addition to all of this; I also couldn't find any circuitry beyond the traces that actually "divide" these rails. And on the load tester, I found that there actually is no OCP, so there is no 19A per 12V rail "limit" either. Just seems to be a single +12V rail PSU! Which actually isn't such a bad thing, but dammit! The label says I get three +12V rails and the PSU is called the "Trio" after all!
