If you care for your computer, get at least this PSU. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3438607&CatId=1483 The one you linked is of cheap, crappy brand, and will most propably break your system within 3 months of you building it.
But... Well, those 3 ppl seem happy with it.

Another thing is: The 8800 Ultra would be stomped by Radeon 4850, if you'd find a Crossfire board bundle, or a CF board for cheap enough so it wouldn't cost more with Q6600 than that bundle does. And, you propably will not need SLI/CF anyways

I'm in the process of building my first PC also, and have done more research than I ever thought possible. Oh and the people on this site have been great. Anywho, with regards to the PSU you chose. I found this one and from the reviews of not just newegg, but tigerdirect and Tom's Hardware, it might be a better choice for you.

It's less wattage, and more money but reviews have stated it has very high efficiency and performance. Apparently you can have a 1000W PSU that performs like a 700W if it's of poor quality. Makes sense, since it's the same for any other amp such as car or home audio. Also, it's 50% off. :)

Thought this might help.
