yes it will be fine but no overclocks.:) 

but in my opinion dont go with that two really they are not so good they runs hotter if u can get then get a hd 6870 cf which is littlebit low in performance but a good card and they doesnt use that much of power and gtx 480 is a power hungry card.

Two GTX480s will use around 500W just by themselves. Toss in a 100W quad core CPU and your at 600W. Not counting anything else or OCing. It will probably run ok, but you'll be right at the limit of the PSU and as mentioned don't even think of OCing.
