The first two links don't work for me, but I can see your case.

The answer is yes, that card will fit in that case . . . as long as you do not already have a card in the slot next to the PCI-e slot.

The card will be inserted into one slot (the PCI-e), but it is too fat and it will cover the slot next to it. Also, that card's fan will move warm air out of the second slot on your case back.

Yes, the case will cool the 4850, but you need to move one of the two side fans to the rear. You do not need two on the side, and one on the rear will help move air out of the case.

mATX = 9.6" x 9.6"
HD 4850 = 9.75"

The case is ATX so you'll be fine, and will have room to spare.

Good Luck on your build!

This case has got one front fan also. how it should be used to bring air in or out.

I am thinking that two side one bring air in. and one each in front and rear make air out. how it will be. In rear this case can have only one fan.

No, you want air moving from the front (and side) and out the back.

I should have mentioned that I was able to find other photos of the mobo and vid card.

I told you it WILL cover, but not use, the motherboard slot next to it.

If you already have something in that slot, you will need to move or remove it.

The card will also use the adjacent slot in the back panel to exhaust hot air.

My both the slot are free to put anything. so no problem if one is cover.
There is lot on HD 4850 getting hot on internet. so i was worried. but cheap price of HD 4850 is making to buy it along with new cabinet.
HD 4850 = 110 + new cabinet costing = 22 dollars.
where as HD 5750 = 150
as performance is same. so i am going for HD 4850 with 10.1 x
