So i'm going to get a new gpu , ati hd4870, and i'd like to know if this card fits on my Foxconn g31mx-k motherboard. I'ts an matx board and also 1.0 so will this card work?

I also need a new psu with 2 6-pin connectors. I was thinking about this

So will this work ? i dont care if its a brand psu or not btw :) 

Also , if i buy a new psu will it come with all the cables i need? I know pretty much about gpu's and psu's etc, but when it comes to installing hardware i pretty much have two left hands ( So i'm asking a friend )

Yes the 4870 will work with your g31 motherboard and yes the power supply will be adequate to power your system. I have no familiarity with the brand of the power supply, it's always better to go with a quality power supply even if it costs a bit more (i.e. seasonic, corsair,antec) , but what you posted is adequate.

I agree with dirt mountain. What you plan on getting will work.

That PSU has all the cables you will need.
