I'd say so. The HD5850 only uses 153 watts of power (130 realistically), and your CPU uses 125 watts of power. The only other major components are the RAM/HDD, which won't use more'n 50watts.

Yeah, it should be more than fine, even with a hefty overclock.

Speaking of overclock, make sure to get your processor to at least 3.8ghz, which is easily possible with stock cooling.
