Here are the amd requirements for a 6950. 500w with 2 75w pcie 6 pin power connectors.

I am not familiar with aero cool psu's.
It is a tier 4(not recommended) on this old list, so perhaps it will not deliver the 550w that the name implies.

In theory, it should be OK. But, a low quality psu under stress can destroy not only itself, but take other components with it.

I suggest you look for a Quality psu.
My short list would include Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, PC P&C, and XFX.

Review of your PSU by X-bit Labs: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cases/display/aerocool...

Their conclusion: Aerocool’s Value series is far from impressive. These PSUs are not very efficient and do not deliver stable voltages.

For a system using a single Radeon HD 6950 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 32 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

If your PSU were a higher quality unit it would work.
