I would definatly get the 680i motherboard. Other than that, you got a great system.

Seriously better power supply. The 8800gtx is a power hog. Also, the power supplys that come with cases are never very good. Go with the 700w ocz. That will be much more reliable/stable.

Well under load the 8800gtx uses around 300-330 watts. So when you have a dual core, hard drives, optical drives and whatever else it doesn't leave a lot for the video card. Plus power supplies that come with cases are cheap and never very good.

4 gb of ram? i would personally ditch 2 gb, save up a little, and use the money to SL-i two gtx's. now that would be sex. although i suppose its unneccesary since no game will be able to use that card to its full potential for a pretty long time. or use the money to up the power supply

only small bottleneck I see is hard drive. why dont you get a raptor 150? or better yet two 74 gb raptors and throw them in raid 0?

Sorry for the bump.

Is it good now with the new power supply?

Removed 2GB of ram.
