Just make sure that your motherboard have pcie x 16 slot for your new 6850. If it does not you will need new motherboard. Anyway, if you can provide your exact specs of your PC that would be very helpful.

I am not sure what vendors are available in India, but Newegg isn't one of them, so I won't use any Newegg links.
As a very general guide only, a quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch, but can operate on ~100V-240V) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency. Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Enermax/LEPA are among the better brands that are readily available in the US. Newer FSP and NZXT models are also decent. Coolermaster is not; their GX models which appear to qualify test poorly, and their older "Extreme" or "Extreme Plus" models are overrated and/or are missing protection circuits they claim to possess.
A 380W Antec Earthwatts or 400W Corsair Builder cost around $45 here, and either could handle a HD6850 without difficulty, even though they are less than 500W. A cheap "500W" PSU may have a dishonest label on it (there are no consequences here for that sort of consumer fraud), but only be good for 350W or less.

Edit: The Corsair PSU that sunnk linked would be an excellent choice.
