    Check out RAIDMAX:: RX-380K ($16.99 (USD) from Amazon).

    The power cable setup looks to be similar to your "600 watt" psu:
    • M/B 20+4 PIN - x1 connector
    • CPU 4 PIN ----- x1 connector
    • SATA ---------- x1 connector
    • MOLEX 4 PIN -- x4 connectors
    • FLOPPY -------- x1 connector

    maximum rated 12 volt load = 18 amps

    For comparison, check out their 600 watt psu specs at RAIDMAX:: RX-600AF and compare their cable setup and power specifications with the claimed power output of this psu.

    I do NOT recommend buying any Raidmax psu no matter how good the price might be.
    The Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D psu will deliver on their rated specs and should easily and safely power your system, but a 450 watt quality power supply would be better if you want to overclock your video card.

    It's your choice, but I think that your decision is not a good one and is dangerous.
    Even if your psu is OK initially with your 6850, I wouldn't want to leave your system running if I left the computer room for more than one or two minutes.

    Good luck.

    @profJim @wazaa I finally received the cable adapter for PCI, it has two molex in one side, I only connected one and it works great. Despite all the odds I have been working for 4 hours with the new 6850 card, and even played Battlefield 3 in ultra settings. It runs super fast. The temp while playing is 80C in desktop 46C. Maybe a bit high, but I heard this card tends to be hot. The power supply is running fine, I hear only the fans spinning.

    Bottom line, the Motherboard Asrock G41M-VS3 R2.0 works with PCI 2.1.

    @wazaa How can I do benchmarking?

    What about 3DMark? Used to be pretty good in the mid 2000's
