Hey everyone I am looking at getting 2 of these cards in SLI

Specs:

HAF 932
i7 930 @ 3.0Ghz
Corsair TX850
6GB G.Skill 1600 Mhz RAM
Mobo: ASUS P6X58D-E

Firstly, is 850 watts enough? And here is my Mobo:

You see the PCI slot next to the white PCIe one? That is occupied with a wireless network card.

Will 2 of these 460's fit properly in those PCIe slots?

Thanks

Yes your PSU is enough :)  and secondly you have to remove your network card i guess.

Yes you will have to remove your network card unfortunately. I'm not sure if they do PCI-E network cards, if so you could technically put one in the white PCI-E slot at the bottom even if it isnt a x16, it will still work fine. This is all theory though.

So something like this will allow space for the graphics cards?

Indeed it will, put that in your spare x16 slot and away you go. Will look a bit wierd but will work just fine.
