This will be my first computer build. I've attached cables and applied thermal paste put processors in, etc. But will this configuration work?

Also I might be upgrading to a 8800GTX And a Q6700 Soon.
If I can find the urge to pay $50 for a bit higher clock processor I probably will but I'll probably just over-clock my Q6600 to 2.6GHz with a Tuniq Tower Heatsink(If it fits on the motherboard)

I need 8GB of RAM so if the ram is limiting anything just give me a cheap good quality recommendation of a power supply.

700 watts seems like alot for that system. Maybe the PCP&C 610w would be a better choice. Save a little $$ too http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703005

Take that money and apply it to the WD 640gb drives. Supposed to be much faster than the older 500gb versions

Also if you have a microcenter in your area, you can get the Q6600 for $199 to save a little more

I'll keep my power supply(May upgrade CPU, Graphics, Motherboard, and up the RAM to 16GB one day)
The small increase of the hard drive upgrade won't be a problem I was looking at them earlier.

My RAM Situation is right though? If I can upgrade for about $50 on the package price of 4 2GB Sticks then tell me.

Will Everything else work?
