It depends on if you are trying to run SLI. If so, I would recommend getting something over 500W of good brand name PSU.

If you arent overclocking a lot, or are not running SLI, than that one should be fine.

A lot is like a 30 or greater OC. But i bet you'll be fine with the 460W power supply

How many hdd's and optical drives, and other stuff are you going to be running also. CC, fans, etc.

Just watch cause if you have a problem and try to contact DFI's support desk, they will not help you unless you have a 480 watt min PSU..
