Why do you have a K-series CPU if you're not overclocking? Waste of money...

Well, anyhow. Any quality 400W+ PSU will do it for you.

edit: or rather any ca. 400W PSU. F.ex. the 380W earthwatts one.

You could probably get away with a quality 450W-500W PSU.

That PSU is overkill. A single HD6850 does not use a lot of power. Any of the 80+ bronze Antec Earthwatts PSUs can run your system, even the 380W model (but I think there's a good price on the 430W right now). Use some of the remaining money in your budget to add another RAM stick so you can run in dual-channel mode.

Edit: Make sure it is an IDENTICAL RAM stick.
