You might consider the new 6870 Radeon, which is a slightly beefed up 5850. It'll run anything with high settings. Otherwise a GTX470 if you want Nvidia. Those are the next step up from a 460.

Looks good. How come the Arctic cooling? Unless you are doing allot of overclocking, then the stock heatsink should be good, but if you are then go for it. The graphics card you picked would be perfect, or as Wolfram23 said either the Radeon 6870 or GTX470 but depends on your price range as they are approx. $50 more.
