    You have spent a lot of money on your system. To spend a little more on the 8800GT would not be foolish. It will work. You don't list your power supply. I hope it is strong

    Right now, your computer looks rather low end. A 3850 is cheaper and probably wont be bottlenecked by the rest of your system.

    i'd recommend upgrading your ram as well, grab another gig, or get some DDR2(if your mobo can handle it), that alone would improve your performance quite a bit

    Isn't that an MATX board? If so, a full length gfx pci-e cared may not fit.
    Choose wisely my son. :)
