You can do better then that.
Low end Thermaltake's aren't the best.
That unit is an old inefficient design and doesn't even have Active PFC.

OZC Stealth2 and ModX units are good for the price also.

^+1. The little voltage switch gives it away as an older, inefficient design; almost certainly overrated.
A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and [some level of] 80+ certification for efficiency.
Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, Enermax, and XFX are among the better brands. A 500W Antec Earthwatts would be a nice choice.

Unless you're planning to add a second GTX460, 500W is all you need. The EA-500D is the one I was thinking. The ones beanoslim's link shows would do too, with the OCZ below the others. It has had good reviews, but dissection may indicate some sub-par items like 85C capacitors so I don't know that it would last as long as the others (still, we're talking years here, not weeks or months).
