    So in my niche i've found quite a few keywords that are low competition only problem is for nearly all of them there are like 2 PR8 sites 1st and 2nd in the niche. Is it still worth me trying to take on these guys or not?

    Who cares if you only rank 3rd? You're still getting free traffic. Big traffic comes from ranking top 10 over a wide variety of keywords, you don't always need to be #1. In fact sometimes it's preferable not to be.

    And you can beat a PR 8 site if their page is general and your page is very specific to the target keyword and has better backlinks with better anchor text.
