Pairing a 550W power supply with a 5850 is limiting yourself greatly. You won't be able to crossfire or upgrade in the future unless you get a 650-750W PSU.

I wouldn't ever build such a high end computer with a low wattage PSU.

get an xfx 5850. lifetime warranty for a few bucks more
get a cas7 version of your memory, if not find something else.
Agreed but I would say to get a 700-750w psu to futureproof yourself with crossfire and ability to add more things as you would like in the future.
