I dont know about their current prices so please check that out. Forget the 460. Pick either 6870 or the 560. Both are very powerful cards.
600W may be enough for you now but considering future upgrades and device safety and oc headroom, try to pick up a corsair 750/850w or similar xfx psu. Both are made by seasonic so no question about quality.
now that is really interesting,
i've just saw something that is EVEN MORE interesting
Lately i've been checking reviews etc @ youtube
& i mostly watch LinusTechTips which i like ALOT =]
Now I want you to look @ this video
It basicly compares a Overclocked Nvidia GTX460 HAWK edition
with a stock reference GTX480
& They almost hit the same performance results
Allthough he can overclock the GTX460 more cuz he runs his GPU fan @ only 45~ %
So i think i'll go with the GTX460 Hawk which is ALOT cheaper than the 560ti & the 480.. & slightly cheaper as the HD6870 black edition
& i'll step back to 600~700W PSU instead of a 850..
I think thats better for my budget ;p
