Default My Build

Well exactly what i want , but want to make sure what i'm getting is going to work together!

Looking to buy

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

( not sure about the motherboard )

Going with 6 gig DDR3

Starting with ATI 5870

Now will my powersupply support 2 5870's if i want to go that route in 6 months?

That power supply is sufficient for two 5870s.

If you're going with DDR3, you have to go with this bundle because that version of the MA479 in your link only supports DDR2:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

This case is better for the money than the one you selected:
Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

And 6GB of DDR3 won't run in dual channel with your motherboard. 6GB usually run in triple channel. So I would suggest something like this kit:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRH - Desktop Memory

If you are content with one card i would consider this:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

If you want CF then I would do this:

Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR T5 XE CFX-SLI LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Core i5 kicks phenom's butt, and its pretty cheap too.

Overall the i5 is better, but in terms of gaming, they're pretty much on par.
