500 watts should be enough for an 8800GT. Most of the 8800GTs only take up one slot:

If it's supposed to be 4-4-4-12, set it to that in the BIOS. Lower timings = better performance.

isnt 8600 GTS< 8600 GT?
i would spend a bit more on the 8800 GT for like 120-150 more

I found this article online and it appears the ram I have is supposed to run at 4-4-4-12 instead of the 5-5-5-18. How do I go about changing this when I'm in BIOS. I was snooping around looking for it but all I could find was to adjust the mhz of the ram. Please point me in the right direction.

Update for those of you who are still awake
went back into BIOS and here are the options that I found
DDR2 voltage Control (Auto, +1.80v, +1.90v, +2.00v, +2.10v)
DRAM Configuration (Auto, Manual)
A.(when in manual options are)
B. (Auto DDR2 400, DDR2 533, DDR2 667, DDR2 800)

Is it possible that the BIOS I'm using doesn't have latency adjustment?
Mobo is

I love the frag boxes.

But you're computer is pretty nice. Am2 is almost ghetto now as Intel has wiped the board. Although as far as Am2 goes, thats a good set up.

Video card is weak, but you get extra points for buying XFX.
