I have purchased from this company before, and they are decent. I haven't had to deal with their customer service yet (3 orders).

Unless you are set on newegg.com.

It would help to know the rest of your system specs to make a judgement on the PSU, but 850 will probably be plenty, depending on the mfg.
I'm not set on newegg, that's just where I automatically go for most everything. I'll take a look.

Sorry forgot about the rest of the system.
CPU: (Quad-Core) Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 @ 3.00GHz 1333FSB 12MB L2 Cache 64-bit
CD: LG 20X DVD R/RW + CD-R/RW Drive Dual Layer
CD2: 16X DVD Rom
FlashMedia: Internal 12in1 Flash Media Reader/Writer
Fan: Corsair H70
HDD: Raid-0 10,000 RPM 2 WD Velociraptor's
Motherboard:Asus Striker II Formula nForce 780i SLI Mainboard
Memory: 8G Corsair Dominator DDR2
Network: Intel Pro gigabite 10/100/1000 Network Card
PowerSupply:Corsair AX850
Sound: Creative Labs X-FI XtremeGamer 24-Bit PCI Sound Card
Video: None

Edit: They only have a picture of the rear of the card O_o

Saw it in a side link, Asus Engtx460top/2di/1g Geforce Gtx460 Cuda 1gb Gddr5

The one I linked is the black covered card. I'm not sure what the difference is, except price...

Oh, I looked, I think it's overclocking... save yourself $15 bucks and do it yourself

Your 850 should be fine with one card, probably with two as well if you are going that route.

I thought it was, I was under the impression that the blue one had higher overclocking ability.

With two 460's it would be fine, that's what you mean right? Cause with two 480's I dono about that.

I come up with about 700W for your system, with two 460's, so I would recommend to you an 800-850 power supply to handle upgrades in the future. You probably would be fine with two 480's, but you won't be able to squeeze much more into that case.

I dono, it's a lot bigger than my old case, they were able to fit 3 5000 series Radeon cards in it.

Sorry, by "case" I mean system. It's what we refer to them as, since the case and power supply are often lumped together as a unit.

Ah k, that makes more sense now. I should have just gone for the 1200 but that seems like a bit much, since the old one I was using was 1000.

With this November sale going on I think I might wait to see if they have any GPU promo's. Still have not decided on one and the 460 is not in stock.

Those are a good alternative, one thing I liked about the Asus one was the heatsink & fan. On the EVGA card it seems much smaller.
