General not too bad. What is your budget total? ~$475? I would use a different PSU, if I were you. Here is probably the minimum that I would use for your build. Look at both links.

PSU - $49 shipped! $38 with google chekcout! Can power 8800gtx and an OC’d e6600! See link above for proof!

You know the 8800gt's and 2950's are coming out soon, right? Not sure when your buying, but right now I'd wait a few weeks to see how things pan out. Possible price reductions on current GPU's could happen, thus giving you more $ for other parts or better parts.

My budget is about 500...and you saying I should go for a 8800? or wait for them to come out to get a price reduction on the 8600?..plus I dont understand..if the PSU with the case is 450W why go with a diffrent one that puts out about 380w???

^ and even if i dont need the full 450w..its cheaper to go this route..
