Yeah that should work fine...you have a decent gpu and a good amount of ram. But if you can afford it i would recommended an i7. Plus have you thought about a crossfireX

I might Sli in the near future but not now, and do you think I should up my RAM a bit more?

Anything over 4GB for this build is a waste, your fine.

i7 would be a total waste and a nonsense too. More than 4GB only if you plan on doing more than gaming (3D, rendering, AutoCAD, etc.)
PSU: I would go with CORSAIR. Only because you can't beat CORSAIR PSU-wise.
SC2 at Ultra no problem with a GTX 460. Awesome card, I owned one.
Why Kingston memory ? Is there a precise reason ?

Oh and while your monitor is great, if I remember correctly it's 8ms of response time. I would try to keep it below 5-6 for gaming otherwise you may feel some lag when gaming.

1.yes I am doing more then gaming, I do some 3d rendering work sometimes..so does this means I need more then 4gb?

2.I might as well go with Corsair :) 

3. Kingston memory? nope no precise reason.

yes, that can mean a 8GB(2X4GB) kit would be in order for you.
2x4GB is better than 4x2GB for 8GB total, filling up all RAM slots on a board can sometimes be a pain to do.
and the pairing of just the two is better for possible overclocking..



best answer! thanks man, or..if you are a female..thanks woman!:D
