50w heater will be fine for 10g. For lights it depends on the wattage your talking about(use the actual watts not the comparable incandescent wattage) and also depends on if your going to use ferts and how much maintenance you want.

I'm using 2x 20w CFL spiral bulbs on my 10g(each is 100w equivalent), I need ferts b/c I'm getting algae and my nitrates are 5ppm even with only 6 hrs of lighting a day.
