Can I get away with less Wattage in the PSU?

Keep in mind the dual monitor set up.

i must say to get gtx 480 as recon uk said its just about $9 or 10 more but it gives performance about $50 to 70 more so getting gtx 480 will be an kind decision just overclock it nicely you will reach about gtx 580 level the fact is heat and power consumption for heat it doesnt matter that much for power consumption the corsair 750w can handle it with ease + oced and for bill that you can pay lol.... get the gtx 480 most better deal now you will get a good card for money.:)

Yah, that 480 looks really nice. The only gripe I think I may have with it is that the reviewers say that it's pretty loud. I do a fair bit of music production/microphone recording within the same room that I have the computer sitting...

But, I realize the budget/constraints that I am working with, so I may still end up going for that EVGA card.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

You will be happy with the 480.
The ones on the egg are revised bios EVGA versions.
They run alot quieter whilst being able to cool efficiently.
You will see roughly 75-85c in normal gaming (BF3 for 4 hours).

I own 2 ;) 

Cheers for the best answer!
