Good choice on the RAM - I really like Kingston. They make good products.

Everything looks great but I would suggest a much better build for the power supply, those from PC Power & Cooling, Antec, Seasonic, Silverstone, Corsair, etc. are much better than what you have selected. Good quality power supply gives less risk in frying all your components and also 700W is a bit too much for just a 9800GT, a good 500W would be sufficient.
Here are a few examples of PSU's you should go with. Any from the list would be good for your build (note that the ASUS P5Q-Pro can only do Crossfire or 2 ATI cards, it cannot do SLI or 2 Nvidia cards), just choose the one that's cheapest when you buy your components.
- PC Power & Cooling 500W for $79.99
- Antec Earthwatts 500W for $89.99
- Silverstone 500W for $89.99
- Antec True Power Trio 550W for $79.99
- Corsair 550W for $97.99 (comes with $20 Mail-In-Rebate)
Also, if you can spare $5 more, this Western Digital Hard drive would be a better buy, it has more space and performs a bit better.
Hope that helps.
