I believe you would benefit from the 700W GameXstream - as the 8800GTX isn't exactly a power saver...also, your upgrade path would be widened.

Which OCZ Ram have you chosen, as with the HD?

HD is a Seagate Barracuda and the RAM is Gold Dual channel DDR2 PC-6400

I would look at Corsair XMS2 for a good stable DDR2 800 RAM set.
