The 1TB Samsung F3 is just about the fastest HD out there that isn't a Velociraptor.

above :

get an evga sli and 2 460 1gb cards? :)
if you dont need modularity, maybe the regular 750 watter from the same co.? on sale you can catch it some 50-70 below that

or try an amd build? but maybe stay 1156.

I am going to change the mobo to Asus P7P55D-E PRO Socket 1156 Intel P55 Chipset so I could SLI my 470 in the future

what non modular psu should I get corsair/seasonic(xfx)??

The TX750 is fine for a pair of 470's

If you went with a pair of 480's then I would get a AX HX or TX850 though, just for comparison of max power needed.

It's a decent PSU, but the XFX is still quite a bit better. I think it's worth the extra cost for the modularity and better performance.
