I think your fine with a 480w PSU, but I would like a little headroom and a good 500w PSU would eliminate that as a future instablitiy factor. Just my 2 cents m8. Sweet setup, go for it.

i would recomend a gb of ram, i made a huge mistake in getting 512 as it made a huge bottle neck, and caused lag in games.
