Sorry for these stupid questions!

I may have to use a temporary Corsair 400W with this setup, is that okay for a while?
Just make sure you're getting a B3 board. It'll be plastered all over the box. Also make sure its brand new in the box, still sealed (obviously). Otherwise, no...nothing to really look out for.

If you plug your GPU into slots 1 or 2 (only one GPU), it'll work at 16x. I've never actually TRIED slot 2, but slot 1 is definitely 16x with only 1 card present. 8x really won't hurt performance at all though, I've dropped to 8x on my GTX580 and noticed literally no drop in performance that I could tell (and I watch my framerates a lot).

As long as its a somewhat recent Corsair 400w PSU, it'll handle the rig fine with up to a HD6870 (HD5770) or a GTX460 / GTX560Ti easily. If you're using the 9600GT on it still, you could SLI that card and not lose any performance at all going 8x, and the 400w Corsair would power the whole thing with SLI just fine (9600GT's).

6870 have 150W tdp.So SB+OC+6870 isn't a good idea.for that 34+ on 12 v rail or dual 20+ rail is minimum.Correct me if i am wrong.Of course some psu like 450vx offers much more power than rated.corsair have three cx psus,the cx430, cx500 ,cx600 with 28,34,40 amps on 12 v rail.
which exact psu u have OP?

I could run my sig rig easily off a good 450w unit (I've done so with an XFX 450w for a short period). Tested with a multimeter, and used OCCT stress tests....12v rails were fine.

You're over thinking things. 150w for the 6870, 150w after overclock on the 2500k, that's 300w. That leaves you 100w for the rest of the system (which needs at most 20-25w anyway). That leaves you 75w overkill with a 400w PSU....assuming it can actually put out 400w on the 12v rail.

ALSO:
You're looking at MAXIMUM POSSIBLE power draw, from EVERYTHING all at once. How often do you use 100% of each and every component in your machine at the same time?

"with good psu ofcourse".The cx series isn't that good.I just got it becoz i wanted a temporary buidl until i get a sadny/ivy build.The corsair gaming series are good.Mine is cx500.With full system load(prime95+furmark+memtest+filecopy ) my 12v rails drops to 11.43!
And you are the very first person i met who have a very good idea what he's talking about when recommending psu :respect: . i have seen people recording 600W for SB i3 +6850 .
Wheat is the rep+ button?

That PSU will last you a VERY long while still.

Technically though, it was the least efficient of the low wattage PSUs we've seen but only by a very small small margin and considering this is the cheapest PSU we've seen, this fact is forgiveable.
Full review found here.

That's seriously one of the best 400w PSU's out there. It'll handle your planned rig with any mid range single GPU setup out there, and some SLI / Crossfire of lower end as well. It's a VERY good unit. It's actually better than the CX430 that replaced it, as the 430 is actually only a 380w PSU.

That will probably take up to a GTX470 / HD6950 with ease for gaming loads.
