850w should be fine, but what exactly is this 850w psu?

Just a heads up: the axial fan cooled gpus do NOT do well in tight spaces. I strongly suggest you get a 4slot NVLink Bridge along with a motherboard with the same 4slot spacing between it's PCIe x16 slots.
If not the above, then the blower models instead; they are ideal for tight spaces.

The exact PSU is the RM850x 80 Plus Gold
No issues there!

Also what is the blower model? and with a blower model would a 3slot NVLink bridge work then
This is what a blower model looks like: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mNGnTW/evga-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8-gb-gaming-video-card-08g-p4-3070-kr
A 3slot NVLink isn't necessary for a blower; they are ideal for 2slot bridges, or in other small spaces.
I skipped 3slot and went straight to 4slot for the axial fan models because the more 'breathing room' they have, the better.
