What power supply? An 80+ Bronze certification is only a measure of efficiency not quality. If it's a good power supply then it should be fine for the listed specs.

What brand is it and how many amps on the +12volt might be close but if its a good unit you will be ok

That is an excellent power supply and will run your HD 6850 fine.
