OCZ PSU for 6850? Good enough?

Currently, I have this OCZ 600W PSU but I am not sure if it's good enough to run a 6850 card, as I heard that the 6850 was quite power demanding, requiring a recommended 600watts.

Question is, would this PSU be able to handle the 6850 card?

I plan to run this card along with my Q6600 @ 2.4GHZ and 4GB of DDR2 Ram.


So, here is the link to my PSU :

    the ATI 6850 is actually rather power efficient and you have plenty of power for it.

    during gaming, total system power won't break 300w
