I don't know much about computer hardware but I want to upgrade my PSU and possibly even throw in a second Radeon HD 6850 in crossfire and a better CPU. I tried using a power supply calculator online but I couldn't really figure it out.

Current Computer:
460W PSU
HD 6850
Intel I7 2600
1 Disk Drive
1 1TB Hardrive
6 USB Spots all but one being used

Does anybody have any suggestions for a better PSU or do I need to put more information. Any help would be appreciated.

Some 6850's use a single connector , others need 2
A psu with 4 connectors will have you covered in either event
You can get a high quality 550w that will cover the power needs of your spec and a pair of 6850's
Or a 650w for the same price after promo
Or a lower cost 650w
The 650w gives room for upgrades

550w with dual connector's, if that's all you require for your pair of cards
