Funny thing is that the 7900gt and the 7800gt use only 1w difference. The X1900XT uses 6w more than the x1800xt but realize that the ati cards use about 40w more than the respective nvidia cards.

I personally think you are fine with the 420w but it's up to you.

I belive you're ok, enermax is a good PSU company. I wouldn't try to overclock anything though.

Don't worry about overclocking; HP makes sure that you can't OC.
