ya it is, though I would think having another 460 in SLI would be good for maxing out games, but the PSU is a litte weak for that (may be able to run it but not sure) But ya, for a intel/nvidia system, for 2000 bucks thats not a bad deal-though for 2000 bucks I imagine you can get a AMD system with crossfire that will offer similar if not better performance.

that 650 might be able to handle it but barely, I would recomend a good high end 750 watt (not all 750 watts are created equal) or higher would be my recomendation.

Yeah but I've never built myself one. Is it easy to do myself? Just by buying the computer parts?
Are there any instructions to build it or smth :D?

You have to be careful that everything you order is compatible-which is pretty easy to do if your willing to do a lot of reading and research, and take care during the building process to always make sure your grounded out to avoid static electricity. There are some mini guides here on what you need to build, and your welcome to ask questions in the system building and upgrading forum and we would love to help you with it if thats the route you choose.
