    For a system running with a single Radeon HD 6950 a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply with a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 33 Amps or greater and with at least two 6-pin PCI-Express supplementary power connectors is recommended.

    The XFX ProSeries 550W Core Edition (P1-550S-XXB9) for $69.99 ($54.99 after mail-in rebate card) has a +12 Volt continuous current rating of 44 Amps and has one 6-pin and one 6+2-pin PCI-Express supplementary power connectors meets the requirements and has ample reserve capacity for any overclocking of the CPU and GPU you may want to attempt.
