    make sure your PSU have 6 pin to power your 6850. some 6850 varian even have 2 x 6pin...

    if you have more money, investing on PSU will not dissappoint you because you can use it later in your next PC. xfx or corsair at 600 wattage is nice spot :)

    the psu do have 6 pin power connector, i want to know if it is enough, i've been using cooler master 500w before which died few weeks back, now i had this psu as spare.
  3. the best recommendation is go for chepest 500-650W from corsair, antecn xfx, seasonic <- they are true quality PSU all the people would advice

    coolermaster PSU isnt on the list for some reasons

    PSU from HP is.... putting your rig all together into gambling
