I don't think that PSU will suffice. It doesn't seem to be 80+ certified and an HD6850 requires more juice than the average GPU.

Hey im not big on the whole hardware stuff for pc's so can you help me out? Would this PC be good enough to play say Day Z ? Im on a strict budget

no, it needs a graphics card. If you have an old pc laying around. spend all that money on a graphics card that fits in it.

quad core processor running at 3ghz or more

ddr3 ram min 4 gigs

a motherboard which supports sata 3 and pcie 3 and usb 3

a grahics card, atleast up to gtx 550 ti specs
graphics cards can be replaced with a new one in the future

That PSU is plenty. Unless you OC the GPU and CPU, it'll be fine. People tend to have a habit of grossly overestimating the power requirements of hardware.

Well, Thermaltake isn't exactly known for their PSU's and it doesn't seem to be 80+ certified at all, so in this case I have my doubts.

If it were a Cooler Master or Corsair PSU with a 80+ bronze certification, then it's a whole other story...
