  1. So what i needit help picking out right vidoe card and ram andmotherboard for thispc please help and power supply
  2. looks fine, only thing i would change is the gtx 470, im not a fan of the gf100 cards they are power hungry and run hot, depends if you getting the gtx 470 cheap though, i would rather get a 5870 if you can afford it, as for the psu a good 850 watt should be more than enough even to SLI the 470s or crossfire the 5870s depending on what gpu you are getting, just make sure you get a good make of psu such as corsair, seasonic, antec, xfx and so on
