PSU is overkill... 520 would be enough. VGA a card is very good. I am not sure how quiet the stock cooler is, but better than 8800 GT and it exhausts out.

If seeing is believing, how can blind person believe in anything?
Maturity is just not experience in life but also ability to make compromises.

Your powersupply is not the best silent choice go for the Corsair CMPSU-620HX 620 Watt. It is large enough and there is room to grow on.
