  1. Yeah it should be fine I think. Cards with lower power consumption than 6850 such as 7770 will also work well.
  2. Yup, very good power supply. Should have no problem with the 6850.
  3. Thanks for the encouraging answers guys :) i forgot to mention that the Corsair PSU has 1x 8-pin PCI-E connector whereas the HD6850 only appears to have a 6-pin connector? a little more help please :??:

    I'm not completely sure, but it should have 2 8-pins, where you can break away 2 of the pins to make it a 6.

  5. Corsair power supplies comes with breakable 8-pins PCI-E connector that is able to split up into 6+2-pins.
