Get an HD5770 and that Corsair if you can.

Otherwise, 8800GTX uses over 120 watts of power; HD4850 uses around 101 I think. Not totally sure.

Hd4850 takes a bit more power.

Corsair 400CX will easily handle any of those cards.Many people are running a 4850 with 400CX with no problems.

HD 4850 performs the same as GTS 250.However if you find both for the same price then get a GTS 250 as it is a little better than a 4850 :)
