For that price, why not just go with a 9800GTX? They are about the same price and even cheaper if you don't count the rebate. The 8800GTS 640mb is really old by the way. An 8800GT 512mb or even better, an 8800GTS 512mb are much better an much cheaper. A 9800GTX will dominate an old 8800GTS 640mb.
They are probably still so expensive, because they don't make them anymore.
Also, you don't need that many watts on your power supply, but if you like that one go ahead. Having too many watts won't hurt anything.
