is ther any reason to bump up to a 470 over the 460. I know it will render bettter graphics and is faster, but i also am one of those people who do the price/performance with everything.

up to you I guess, since your only buying 1 card now I'd just get a more powerful one.

aways on option :p . I tend to buy OCed already because I find it easier and don't want to mess with it. the other advantage of the 470 is theres an option two three-way sli. Although the performance gain is nothing like going from 1 to 2.

and no prob :D  I ordered that PSU yesterday. Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1tb for $50, 8GB of G.skill ram for $80 today.
I'm waiting for SB though, as my signature displays lol.

I got the DDR3 1333 C9. It'll do fine for me, $80 its fantastic considering I checked 2 days ago and the cheapest was $105.
