Default Yet another GTX280 PSU question

I've read a few threads about this but am still a little confused.

Each card requires a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector, correct? My PSU is a Silverstone Zeus 850W (link). It has four 6-pin connectors. I want to run two 280's in SLI. Think my PSU will do OK using the supplied adapters that come with the cards (if I'm understanding the connections correctly)?

Also, has the overheating issue been resolved? Are the newer cards running at acceptable temps?
