The 460 will work fine, your CPU may become a little bit of a hold-back in more demanding games, but so long as your resolution is under 1080 then you'll be fine.

I don't like the look of that PSU, maybe get a better branded one? Like Corsair or Antec.

OMFG, I paid like $100 more for each of mine. That one is the eyefinity 6 edition with twice as much RAM! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Anyway, yeah that 5870 is an awesome deal. If I were you I would upgrade that PSU though even if you just go with the 460. Your CPU will likely be the limiting factor for you in games though.

Yeah I agree your cpu is gonna hold back your Gpu and I dont think that psu is gonna last very long with the power hungry 460 im running the same and had to change my psu, so I got the corsair tx650w works great now
