Looks good except for the PSU. I would look at a Corsair just because clean power is super important. If you want to stay cheap though, I have had good luck with the 600W ModXStream from OCZ and have not heard favorable reviews about the fatality.

To save even more look at a Vapor-x 5770. It's DX11 and runs every game I play (SC2, TF2, Borderlands, BF2BC) on max. 460 is a tiny bit more future-proof though.
