How old is the psu and have you had any issues with it?
The reviews I could find were not very flattering to say the least.

Yeah I read the reviews, although there isn't that many there were not good. But I have not had any issues with it at all, been running fine *touches wood*.

It's about 18months old I think, got it about the same time as my pre-owned 9800gt that just when insane on me. Will the 8800gtx use A LOT more power than a 9800gt or is it just a small difference?

Typical power requirements for your card below;
System Requirements: PCI Express-compliant motherboard with one x16 graphics slot, Two 6-pin supplementary power connectors, Minimum 450W or greater system power supply (with 12V current rating of 30A)
Someone may need to confirm this but I think that the two 12v rails added together 16A + 16A = 32A which would cover you Amp wise.
