What OS?

I would wait on the graphics card until mid-November if you can wait that long.

I would also get an Evga card due to their 90 day step-up program.

I would get a better PSU

Only 10.00 more http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

More expensive, but 550 might be slightly on the low side for your system, and might also inhibit future upgrades.

You might want to ask other about the PSU's, but I find Seasonic's to be superior to anything in Tier 2.

What games do you play? In case somebody wonders, he may play 2d board games or full-blown 3d crysis.

Are you going to overclock?

Why the SLI motherboard, are you planning to add a second 8800 GTX later?

- If yes, the PSU is wrong, get a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W Crossfire instead. I'd also trust the eVGA 680A1 motherboard more.

- If not, I'd get a P35 motherboard, like GA-P35-DS3R or aBit IP35Pro.

Why Sparkle, of all companies that make 8800 GTX? I don't know about their standard 8800 GTX, but their Calibre 8800 GTX is better avoided IMO. You're probably better off with eVGA, BFG or XFX.

Have you picked a case already? Just in case you didn't know - the 8800 GTX is BIG, it will refuse to fit in some mid-tower cases.
