no ! it is a terrible power supply as others with more experience than me will soon tell you,
go for a better brand like corsair, or antec, dont ever be tricked by tigerdirects pathetic ultra brand power supplies

in general more than the wattage is important in a power supply, like efficiency, current at the 12v line, etc. but in short ultra is not a good brand.
use this power supply calculator http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
and see how much power you really need,
Im sure somebody willl eventually tell you what power supply to buy as im not entirely sure how much power you will need

Get this one:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
That's $10 more than the one you linked above, 650W only but I guarantee you can run dual GTX460 with that PSU. :) 

However, you must use molex 4pin to 6pin for the other GTX460 since this PSU only has 2x 6pin power connector. That's should be no problem with this PSU.
