Get the HD6850 for sure.

All the parts are compatible but I would suggest a better psu for sure.

How much do you have to spend on a psu? This one is only $39.99 after rebate and promo code. (promo code ends tomorrow). I've personally had this psu for the last 2 years, its a good unit with 3yr warranty, modular cables, quiet, 80+ certified, etc.
