New graphics card, old system - will it blend?

Hi, I'm buying a new graphics card and have been looking at the Radeon 7850. Thing is, my system is pretty old, about four years I believe. I currently have a GeForce 8800 GTS which has broken down. My cpu is an Intel core2 E6600. Don't recall what motherboard, but it's a standard board from back then. Do you think the 7850 will run with my old system? It'll probably bottleneck, but I don't have the budget for a whole new system right now.

Assuming your PSU is strong enough, the 7850 would work.
It will bottleneck though.

Thanks for your speedy reply! My PSU is at 600, or 650 w, I figure that'll work out.
