Default 450W PSU + 6850 NEED HELP!

Hi all, yesterday I decided I wanted to upgrade 3 pc parts on my PC. My budget was £250.

Im an editor and occasional gamer.

AMD ATHLON X2 250 >> AMD Phenom X6 1055T (£115)
4GB CORSAIR RAM >> 8Gb RipjawsX (£30)
XFX nVidia GT240 >> Radeon 6850 (ASUS) 1gb (£105)

However, my PSU only delivers 25A on its SINGLE 12v Rail

Also, I think it only delivers 400w power.

It is a cheap generic CiT psu.

I am only using 1 1tb HDD

Will i be ok with my current PSU?

Phenom x6 95w
Asus 6850 150w
other crap 150w (hdd,dvd-rw)

Did you try it yourself? I think you would need a new PSU.
