Hardware Secrets did a test of that PSU.
It is over rated.
It's stated for 460w, but it actually performs only up to 420w at max load.
I personally would not buy it.
Though you won't even force it to load with the setup you have, if it's in your budget, then go for it.
The HEC 585w offers similar performance for about $5 cheaper, and can power your build with a 4850 added in.
If I were you, I would find out if my motherboard was a standard ATX mATX or uATX and then look for a compatible mid tower case. (I like the Rosewill Blackbone, but I don't know if it would be compatible with your mobo or anything)
Then I would buy the HEC 585w PSU (With power cord) ((Not the ORION, but the OEM HEC 585w for only like 25$ after promo code))
And I would get the Sapphire 4850 for about $100
All in all, you'll probably spend... $150-180 on a very worthwhile upgrade for the time being.
(Compared to what you were using)
