I didn't think that it would still be possible to get a 6850 new. Looks like you can, but perhaps not for $140CDN.
Sapphire requires a 500W PSU for their versions of the 6850. I expect that a Corsair CX500 would be adequate.
If memory serves, the 6850 was the third most powerful single GPU card of its generation (after the 6870 and 6890).
I think I'd take a GTX 650ti over it, but they'd be of roughly the same class in performance.
