Well, do you already have the GTX470? And what power supply?

You might want 8GB for gaming.

I wouldnt go with the 470. Atleast get a 560 Ti or 570 because the 470 wont run things in high quality in the long run. And I'd agree with Deemo on getting 8 gigs for gaming.

My 460 runs stuff on high now, but some newer games coming out I am expecting to have to switch to maybe high/medium ish. I might swap back in my 6950.

yeah lol it was overkill, like the ram, it better to have more than enough, then not have enough, it gives me a boat load of room to expand in any direction i want, i built it in feb 2012, it cost me 982.00 to build this beast, and when income taxes come again in feb 2013 then ill finish it with ssd 250gb primary, ocz 1tb pci express cold storage, 3x3 tbs sata II 6gb drives, on top of the 4tbs im cranking with now, and def 2 more video cards, educating myself on radeon cards, thats why i love this site cuz u find out all stuff the manufactuer doesnt provide, and most def getting a high performance liquid cooling system, cuz i wanna actually overclock this gaming rig like it was intended and built to do, sick of downclocking everything cuz it runs to hot even with stock fan, 1-250mm, 3-180mm, 1-120mm, and all fans are cranked at max and still it runs idle at 30-35c and 45-50c playing games lol

You don't necessary need liquid cooling unless you plan to overclock like mad. Mine doesnt do any better than my 212 Plus.
