c. As you do not specify which Seasonic 650W PSU you have, I cannot check it for you. You just make sure it has four 6 (or 6+2) Pin PCIe connectors available as a GTX460 needs two of these.
If the PSU does not have enough natively, then you will need to use 'two-4 pin-Molex-to-one-6 pin-PCIe' adapter cables to make up for it.

No, the PSU is perfectly fine even if it doesn't have any PCIe connectors.

It's the same, no disadvantage.
