You have not given hardly any information that I require to give advice. Without it there is nothing that can be said or advised.

My question is Can these 2 work together in SLI?

First limitation is power 650w is pushing considering a stock gtx 460 768mb version tops out at 150w stock and around the same give or take for the se. The second problem is that the se will not enable sli with your existing card unless bios flash with an edited rom but since fermi cards are hard to flash and editor tools are hard to find it is not worth the effort.

So only consider sli with a second 768mb version gtx 460 alongside with a psu upgrade.

Thanks Sir, for advice.

Say I wanted to upgrade my PSU, What wattage would be good enough to run SLI?

A rock solid 800w class unit will leave room for further upgrades.
