Yes you will be ok with ATX v2.1 it is a newer version of a power supply that the v2.1 standard specifies must have 2 seperate 12v rails.

The somewhat older ATX v2.0 but still widely used to day has only 1 12v rail

What graghics card and what psu are you planning on, I am interested only because these newr video cards need good stable power on all the rails and I would like to make sure you are using a good name brand psu because even though the psu is v2.1 compliant doesn't mean its quality

and the power supply will be the one supplied with the Antec Sonata II

You will be ok with that power supply but I prefer the True power line of Antec Psu's but because you get it with the case I would use it.
