Hardware question

Dear all!

I need a new computer but i'm really noob in hardware n all that stuff so I would really appreciate your help!

In order to optimize your performance what bundle would you choose? And Why?


1x ZOTAC GTX-480 AMP! 1.5GB DDR5, PCI-E 2.0 x16


2x ZOTAC GTX-460 AMP! 1GB DDR5, PCI-E 2.0 x16
(do I need a mainboard with 4 x PCI-E 2.0 x16 (as the graphic cards might be too big for a 2x or 3x PCI-E 2.0 x16) for that?)


1x HIS HD 6970 2GB, PCI-E x16 2.0, DP, HDMI

C is about 70 euro cheaper than A and B which are almost equally expensive.

General question:

Is a mainboard like Asus Sabertooth X58, LGA1366, SLI, CFX, USB 3, SATA-3 enough for such a combination or what mainboard would you recommend me?

Follow-up question:

What kind of Power Supply (W) do i need for such a computer (I'm targeting something like:
CPU: Intel Core i7 950 BOX, 3.06GHz, LGA 1366, 4C/8T;
Memory: 3x4 3x4GB DDR3-1600,CL9-9-9-24
Graphics: see above)

Thank for your valuable help!
you don't need 4 x PCI-E 2.0 x 16 @ B, and i would take B for power supply you better can take a bit more then you are safe so i would take somthing of 800W but you can better look up all the specs of your parts and then see how many Watt you need
