I know the power supply is 850 watts, but it has 4 12v rails, 1:22a 2:22a 3:24a and 4:24a.

I was not sure how this would affect powering the graphics card.

Also, how would i go about arranging where i power what from (regarding the rails)

A good 650W PSU can power two of those.

Just use one of the hardwired PCIe power cables coming out of the unit. You won't have to worry about balancing the 12V loads with this unit.
