Yeah it should be fine I think. Cards with lower power consumption than 6850 such as 7770 will also work well.

Yup, very good power supply. Should have no problem with the 6850.

I'm not completely sure, but it should have 2 8-pins, where you can break away 2 of the pins to make it a 6.

Corsair power supplies comes with breakable 8-pins PCI-E connector that is able to split up into 6+2-pins.
