Yes everything will work, you could add an aftermarket cooler such as the CM 212+

I suggest not getting the GTX480 and instead going with the HD 5870 it is a better card, however I am guessing you are a fanboy....

I would recommend you to change that PSU. Here you have some much better alternatives for powering your GTX480:
