Looks like raffaz has got you covered on that aspect
I need advice on the video card and PSU. Since I will be getting a DX10 card I'm not sure how much I really want to spend on a vieo card and I no nothing about PSUs.
Also, any tips on a first build are welcomed
If you want a dx10 vid card then you will have to wait a little while yet as they haven't been released. If you want to build now then you are going to need a video card of some kind. If you really want to go dx10 then i suggest just buying a cheap card then once dx10 is released go ahead and sell it or whatever and buy a good dx10 based one.
As for a power supply, the standard it seems nowadays is about 500W to be on the safe side with a high amperage on the 12V rail (like 27A or better). You can thank the modern day graphics cards for that one.
