Gaming wise it will handle most things well up to 1080P resolution. TT PSU if you already have it will handle a single card fine but better brands are Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, Enermax, XFX or OCZ to name few.

I have this same board and what your saying is that the first slot is x16 and the second is x4 that I can't run two ati 7850's. Do they both need to be x16? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
