GPU- Galaxy 60XGH6HS3HML GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) GC Version 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
NOTE- I am unsure if this is the 'good' out of stock GTX 460 that you fellows recommended if I want to SLI later on. Could someone please steer me in the right direction?
EDIT- I forgot to mention that my current monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080, but that I am considering an upgrade later on.
HSF- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-G1 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler
NOTE- Out of stock everywhere besides Newegg (at inflated price). I might purchase it elsewhere later for $20 less.
I definately reccomend the GTX460.. it should absolutely be the card... HOWEVER... ther are much better versions than the Galaxy.
The ABSOLUTE best 460 out there is the PALIT sonic platinum 16 - this is the oen that most people probly reccomended you and it is out of stock. I was lucky enough to get one ordered on wednesday, should be here tomorw
They are selling like hotcakes... the 2nd best version is the EVGA superclock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's $209, which si a great deal and its overclocked about 20% vs a normal - well worth the $10 extra dollars. If you were goign to SLI... i'd get two of these. No need for the 1gb versions if you plan to SLI.

So they are pre-overclocked? That should save me some trouble.
Thanks for the quick reply by the way, that was exactly the answer I needed.
Two of the EVGA's in SLI will smoke a sotck 480, so that's a good route to go
about the rest of your build... the hyper 212+ is definately a agreat choice for heatsink. I have one of those I got for $30. Cant remember exactly where I ordered it from, but i saw it on logicbuy.com on sale. -Make sure you get some good thermal grease as well (arctic silver 5 would be my reccomendation)
That's a good power supply too! if you do get a 2nd 460, that PSU will still be fine running yoru whole system... so you're pretty set in all your components.
