I was just wondering if my computer's power supply has room for sli of the GTX 470 and possibly 6 more gb of ram. My build is:

Processor: Intel core i7 950 bloomfield
GPU: Nvidia Gtx 470 superclocked
Ram: G.Skill P.I series 6gb 1600mhz triple channel (3 dimms)
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth x58
Case: Cooler Master Storm Sniper.
SSD: G.Skill sniper series 120gb
HDD: WD Caviar black 7200rpm 640gb 64mb cache
PSU: Coolermaster 80+ bronze 1000w Modular
Disk drive: Asus DVD+RW

all higher-end cooler master PSUs are of good quality, it should even handle a tri-sli setup with ease

You have a solid unit.

It'll handle a 2nd GTX 470 with ease and leave you with lots of room to spare. Like someone else said, you could have three GTX 470s and still be perfectly fine.
Also, an additional 6 GB of RAM is of no importance whatsoever in terms of power consumption.

It is a sad day when a 1000w PSU cannot handle SLI
and that manufacturer should be tared, feathered and then quartered(while still alive).
