Default Final parts list, suggestions?

Final parts list for my i5 2500k build, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Case: Zalman Z9 Plus.
PSU: Xigmatek NRP-MC702 700w.
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3.
CPU: i5 2500k.
GPU: MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk.
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 1600.
HDD: WD Caviar Black 640GB.
Optical: Lite-On Sata CD/DVD Burner - OEM.
CPU Cooler: Antec Kuhler H20 620.
Case Fan: 140mm Xigmatek Extreme Silent.
OS: Win7 Home Premium.

1) Think I'm better off going 2x GTX 460 cards than 1x 560ti? (about the same price)
1b) If I went with ^ I'd need to upgrade to a 900w PSU?

2) Case has vents for bottom mounted PSU without a filter, worth buying one and creatively attaching it to the PSU or case?

1 gtx 560ti is better than 2x460s. Less heat, less power consumption, less noise, more room for upgrades, newer technology.
