Yes it should. Even the 6850 is pcie 2.0 and your mobo is pcie 16x , will be suported because pcie 2.0 is backward compatible. And your psu will be enough for that video card.
While that unit only has 31.6amps(380watts) of 12 volt goodness, it should still have no problems with your system.
Overclocking the cpu a bit would not hurt performance either
