^ Hi, the board that you have chosen wont do SLI...you would need a board like this one -

The GTX 460's price does look very attractive, but having 2 cards in a small case might pose some heat issues, but if those cards exhaust the hot air outside the case, then its fine...

PSU - This XFX is cheaper -

The board that kay09 posted..... my friend has one of those with 2 MSI "circular" cooler GTX460's in sli on it in an InWin Black Dragon case... ( really gray in color ).... and it runs cooler than what he had it in before. Might be worth looking into. I have that case too and it's really the nicest and probably the coolest running case you can get for a micro atx board. Good Luck.
