since your cpu and mobo are fairly old id probably upgrade those. 8gb ddr3 is perfectly fine and overkill for a lot of games. your graphics card is fine btu if you want to get another for sli or get a better card overall ill set up two for you one with sli since you have a 1000w psu and one without it and just a better gfx.

Thank you...There aren't many 470's in the market tho:(  ... i guess i should try to save 400$ more and get a total killer mobo/processor combo with this new Ivy bridge and try to get the best from my video card until i find a new/good affordable card.
