You linked the GPU instead of the motherboard but that doesn't really matter.
I see there's already a Corsair TX650 in your sig. That would be more than enough as the components you linked to would run fine on 400W. Are you going to use the TX650 for something else? If not, keep that.
If you really need a new PSU for whatever reason, get an Antec Neo Eco 400W.

Would you be able to go a tad higher for a 6850?

It's ranked 17th fastest compared to a 35th ranked 5770.

For PSU, here's a good one with a deal:

It is an OCN recommended PSU.

The system I currently have will be going to my nephew, his current pc is crappy and he loves to game and everytime I watch him play the graphics are an eyesore for me so I feel bad for the guy.

I am able to go for that graphics card I just did not know if the PCI Express 2.1 was compatible with 2.0 version. I just assumed it wasn't compatible.

sorry about the mislink, here's the motherboard link.

I see. Then you'll be fine on the Antec Neo Eco 400W I mentioned earlier. If you can afford something a bit more powerful than the Radeon 5770, the PSU will handle up to a 6870 comfortably.

I know its a "wrench in your plans", but were so close to Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer, I wouldnt even waste money on this gen now. Limp that old intel for a just a bit longer, there is some REALLY awesome stuff coming. Like, crap your pants awesome.

Think I saw some prices of ~$300 for a Sandy Bridge that was an absolute monster.

I never been into having the latest thing right away, I like to get the hardware that already has been proven and that is ahead of what I have that way I don't have to break my wallet in trying to get a great performing PC.
