For single GPU it must be enough if you are using a regular PC. Also its Active PFC and must be a good power (Antec Brand is good too)
you did not mention CPU, Ram, HDDs and etc....

yep the psu meets the amd recommentations for the 6950, and Antec being a good brand there's no reason to worry.

and frankly the 6950 uses 132W under heavy gaming and the psu has 480W on the 12V rail, so there's plenty left for other components to use.
