you might as well go with the 1gb version of the 460, and I don't know if its just me but I've never heard of that PSU, you should probably go with a known company (if that isn't one already)

You didn't post any actual link, lol.

I'm pretty sure they're the same except for color differences. Just go with the GTX 460. You'll appreciate it more in the long run. If you want something with Dx11 support and the speed of a GTS 450 then go with a ATi Radeon HD 5770. lol

Don't event think about buying a diablotek PSU, that unit has received probably the worst review I ever seen.
