  1. You might want to invest in a bigger PSU i suggest a 650w
  2. Agreed that you should get a bigger power supply, the GTX sucks up the amps.
    Yes that MObo is overkill if not overclocking and you are never going to use 2 video cards. Save $100 and get a decent P965 based board. The RAM is also high end but not as much, depending on the price you are getting, you can save money there also.
  3. i second and recommend the above aswell.
  4. Please do your self a favor and get a decent PSU. Look here:

    For a decent one. If your going to spend that kind of $ on that system, don't skimp on the PSU! 8800GTX soaks up a bunch on Amps on the 12V rail.
