Actually that 600W PSU is pretty good according to jonyguru.com. I'd get the 470 GTX personally. Even though it's not listed, I assume you got an i5-750/760?

yes my bad, got the Intel Core i5 760 Quad Core Processor Lynnfield LGA1156 2.8GHZ 8MB Cache Retail Box

was part of a bundle deal with the lx version of mobo, got the combo for under 300 so was kinda happy with that

yes i like the 470gtx and always been happy with msi in past, i have a 250gts, had got it as a backup and realize now thats just a cheapy card but was always good in a pinch for me. guess was leary on the psu more then anything

I would say wait for the 69xx series to come out from amd in the next coming weeks. You already have a relatively capable gpu to suffice till then. Just my two cents
