I'm a little confused as to what you're asking really...You mean, can your 600 watt PSU support a 460 and a 480, on top of the other two 480s you have in your signature? The answer then, is 100% no. Can your PSU support three 480s? 100% no. Actually, I would say you would be on thin ice with two 480s honestly, they are some power-hungry monsters. I personally wouldn't risk anything over two 480s on a 600 watt PSU, even a quality unit.
I mean, under Furmark (which I don't think is terribly unrealistic as we're talking BOINC and not gaming here) the 480s in SLI pull over
Under gaming loads, 480s do better at around 400 watts or so. But still, personally, there's no way I would ever run two 480s off of one 600 watt PSU. So you're already outside of my comfort zone
