Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Actually, you're just fine and the GTX 460 should work flawlessly on your PC. Power supply is OK.

Regardless price, Please suggest me something that is good for my gaming pc.

Processor = Intel Core i5 750 2.67Ghz
Motherboard = Asus P7H55 LX
RAM = 4GB DDR3 Kingston
1TB Seagate HDD

Also, should I need to increase my RAM or processor too?

Waiting for some response.

That's already a hell of a gaming machine, no need for any upgrades there. And the 460 will fit right in.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

My opinion is to buy the GTX460 and you will need about 700-800W PSU... (750W)
