  1. Indeed, it will support everything you listed just fine. If you plan to upgrade the video card anytime soon, it would require a more powerful PSU with PCI-E connectors.
  2. Another revision of an old design, with no current review I wouldn't trust it.

    The good news is the 4600 series cards are not power hogs like some of the other cards. The ATI Radeon™ HD 4600 series graphics cards consume less than 75 watts under full load. They don't even need an external PCI-e power supply connection. Replacing the Thermaltake power supply with a high quality unit won't be that expensive.

    The Corsair CX400 would be an appropriate choice for your system. It is currently on sale at newegg.com for a final price of $39.99 after mail-in rebate and shipping is free:

    I was just saying that you will need a more powerful power supply with PCI-E connectors in order to run let's say, a 5770. Your power Supply does have a PCI-E connector, but it certainly will not push a 5770. The PSU you have is ok for what you have, but it is still suspect none-the-less...
