Building Computer and want second opinions

im relatively sure i know what im doing but it never hurts to get a second opinion. This is what i have and want to make sure all of this is compatible.

I have a cooler master extreme power plus 460w Power Supply
MSI Z87-G43 Motherboard
GTX 660 Graphics Card
2 4gb sticks of Corsair DDR3 RAM
I-7 4770k Processor

Im picking up a 2 molex to 6 pin pcie adapter for the second power to the graphics card as the power supply only has a single 6 pin.

Do you guys see any problems with this set-up?

Decent rig for gaming....

Personally I'd want more PSU reserve for now and the future ....I'm thinking of the proposed unit as running closer to its upper limit than I'd be comfortable...not to mention there little or no room to expand. It's like a Honda Civic running full out at 90MPH whereas a more robust, higher horsepower vehicle like an Accord V6 would run longer and with ease at 90MPH.

Also I'm a big believer in aftermarket HS fans ...anything that makes my $300-$350 CPU run 10-15c cooler increases it's useful life and reliability. Check them out over at Frostytech.com ... if you don't go crazy it's a small investment that's always paid dividends for me.

Let us know how it works out.

what would you suggest for a power supply upgrade? this is my old power supply everything else is new. i didn't really want to put forward the extra 50 bucks or so for a new power supply if i didn't have too.
