Will the Radeon HD 6850 work with my mother board

I have an HPE 500z and my processor is AMD Athlon II X4 640 (quad core) I THINK my motherboard does have PCI express 2.0 (so says CPU-Z)

Will this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908 Work with my Prossecor and motherboard?

Also, what (550 watt and up) PSU's will work with all of this?

Thank you so much

  1. Ok, edited so it's more clear.
  2. It will be able to install it but your computer's power supply will be over stressed. You'll need a 400w continuous wattage power supply to also support the 6850. You can get one for 30 to 50 dollars at the newegg website. I would suggest this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817339009

    I am also looking for a new PSU, (maybe something with enough watts to leave headroom for a future upgrade?) right now this looks good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341022 would this work?
