I don't see any memory/psu... or are you using the ones from your old build?
I would have recommended that you used the money you spent on WC to upgrade your gpu. Not sure how much WC stuff costs (since I've come to the conclusion that it's not suitable for my purposes, gaming on a value rig, since it is very low bang for buck), but if we put it at an estimate of $300, you can buy a very good $25 cpu cooler and a gtx275 with a $50 aftermarket cooler, or even just get a hd5850. Just my $0.02

Oh yea, you could also sell your current 8800, and maybe use the combined money to get a fresh psu, maybe modular :)
