  1. Looks good. If you're not gaming isn't that GPU overkill?
  2. +1 to mosox's comment. You could get something less powerful and still do what you listed.

    Otherwise, you can easily OC a stock factory GTX 460; if you can save a reasonable amount of money buying a stock card, do it.
  3. Can you show me some links abt the stock factory GTX 460? Thanks
