YES, but this is a better deal and better unit (Seasonic-made):

Only 2 left, so hurry up.

Guys, I just found this PSU SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W from a friend of mine. He has used it once and it is still in warranty. He said he would sell it to me for $40!!! Is this PSU reliable? 520W is still more than 500W, so this or the Corsair? Huh, i dont want to miss this offer.. what should I do here/

Both, the GTX460's are incredibly effecient. For your system though I'd prefer the original CX400(Discontinued) or the Antec Neo Eco 400 seeing how they are based off of the S12II( or S12D I can't find the internal shots to find out which) and that's a good platform.

500W is fine for that system even when OC'd.

Yeah, I read that the SeaSonic PSu is not modular and it has way too many cables.. Is that a big problem? I mean, I think i will be able to do a good cable management.

Seth this is your first build correct? What case do you plan on using?

Because if you can get that Seasonic for $40 then there is no question here of your choice. But if you could tell me your case then I could help you get some ideas on cable management which is an important skill to have.
