It can run on less than 300W depending on CPU and workload

An overvolted, highly overclocked 5830 will touch 160W, at stock voltage it won't pass ~130 in anything except furmark..
On what exactly do you base your ridiculous 500W minimum?

It refers to the entire system draw not the VGA alone and it needs to account for all the Diablotek/Coolmax/generic crap PSUs out there that can't provide half their rated power.
Do some research, look at some benchmarks to find out what the actual requirements of your card are
