I want to get the EVGA Geforce Gtx 260 and replace the both 8600's,
also i want to get the OCZ EliteXStream OCZ800EXS 800W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Retail all from egg.

See my sys specs, my Corsair HX520 does a great job...no issues at all. I don't know much about that PSU, maybe post specs? I have 3x12v 18A rails on my Corsair...but I've read of guys that were fine with 450W psu's and a GTX260 so you could be just fine! Also depends on how much you overclock...as that can change this picture a bit.

You may be alright...but that is not quite the amperage you'd want to have for a spec requirement for any modern card from upper mid-range and beyond. I've read users were okay with less than 500W PSU's though...I'd recommend a Corsair HX520W if you want modular or TX550W if you want price/performance, I think you would be okay tho!

im thinking of getting the OCZ EliteXStream OCZ800EXS 800W with it, with all the rebates its comes to $360 for the evga gtx 260 with the power supply, im getting 800W because im also going to upgrade my processor in the near future

also i dont know if the card will fit into my mid-tower xion II case, im going to my friends to see the card, he just got it, and im impressed with the benchmarks on games, so we will see
