That PSU looks very weak.It might be able to run a 5770 but i wouldn't put a 6850 on it.
If i was you i would get a new PSU.

Wait and see what some other people say about it.
I'm just saying i wouldn't trust it if it was my card.

Not only will you want at least 600W to be safe, but never, NEVER, get a PSU from a no-name manufacturer unless you want the whole rig to go. The best manufacturers are Antec and Corsair, I'd stick with them.

it does not depend on how many wattages does you PSU produce, but more importantly how many amps on a 12V rail..... 30+ amps is enough.
