    Okay, you need a 2.0 or 3.0 x16 PCI express slot, (long ones on the MB, the MB info will tell you) Your PSU must provide 75W of power in a PCI express Power cable, which are the powercables for the GPU, if your PSU has 6+2 pin It'ss work if you pull two away, Yes, 1gb RAM, The thing with DVD drives is Games and Music cd:s you wan't to play and the drive for the unit itself, and finally The CrossfireX These are if you want to use two GPUs (only 2 7850s will work, if you have space, enough PSU) connected together.

    Hope I covered it all, and hope it helps!
