i was thinking of buying
I7 930
ASRockX58 Extreme3 asone
GTX460 OC D5 1GB(810MHz / GDDR5(DDR5) / 4000MHz / 1GB / 256-bit / PCI-Express 2.0 x16)
WD1TB Caviar Black WD1002FAEX (SATA 6Gbps/7200/64M)

now a few question i was thinking about SLI about next year which means i need a better power ( i was guessing about 850W due to overclocking to 4.3 and 2 gforce will use alot of power also)...... then again next year there might be better nicer cards... will my SLI still be as good as other cards that will come out next year?? or should it be better to buy a 500W power now and just change my card next year.

Not necessarily a bigger power supply, bigger isn't always better. And you probably don't need 850w anyway.

Overclocking is never guaranteed, or recommended. Just because a PC magazine can overclock something to the Nth degree and then some more doesn't mean you'll be able to achieve the same results.

As to next year, general rule of thumb is everything you buy next year will be better than this year.
