Thanks for your reply. I looked at your specs and realized that the 560 Ti is pretty cheap. Also made me realize my 460 was overpriced. I think I will go with a cheaper 460 and overclocking it when required.
At your res, the 460 isn't exactly recommended. It can be used, but isn't the best card for 1080P, if you have the money, I suggest just going with the build I suggested, it'll give you way more power (PSU) easier cable management and a better card. Though if you think you don't need I suppose it's whatever. I do recommend getting a better card though.
