Get yourself an HD 6870, GTX 460 1Gb or GTX 470.

I'm not real thrilled about your 500 watt power supply for a GTX 470, so I would go with either a GTX 460 or a HD 6870.

Ya i know me either, but i was leaning towards a GTX 460 and I want to dual screen with it, is the power supply yo low for that?

I'd lean toward a GTX460 1GB. What model 500w do you have? If it's something like an Antec Earthwatt or OCZ it gives you more options.
