the last thing is the gpu and thats where im the most unsure. i dont play an playing games in osx just as long as i get full resolution and qe/ci support. i know the 5870 is new and it is hard to tell if apple wil upgrade from its curreny 4870 or if 5870 will ever be supported but it seems like the best option atm. so any suggestions is greatly appriciated. also i was going to buy this wifi card http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683... but if you know of a better one with osx and windows vista/7 support that great.

Welcome to the forums!

Change that power supply to a Corsair. You don't need 1000W unless you are planning on doing Crossfire later on.

sorry i forgot to mention that i will be upgrading to Crossfire in the future just not right now also i choose that psu because it has a high rating on newegg and is cheaper than most. Now the other psu i was considering was the Corsair HX1000W CMPSU-1000HX 1000W http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
there a very respectable company and i can find it for cheaper online around $220 however again it is crossfire ready but not certified. is that so much of an issue? and thanks for helping

well still for dual crossfire a good 750 watt psu will cover you but of course if your planning on tri or quad fire then the 1000 watts will be necessary

k thanks guys so aside from the psu i'm guessing it sounds good to you guys. oh and the only thing i didn't mention was my cpu cooler i'm going with the corsair hydro h50 with a new fan though aside from the stock one.
