''500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended'' for hd 7850, idk will psu be enough for 7850?
also will 7850 fit into that case i am not sure even it fits, the airflow will be poor

yes there is a special reason you should get a 6 core, it is just $10 more expansive :)  and its 95 W you can overclock it to 4.5 ghz by closing 2 cores if you want ;)
