Purepower 500w W0100 ~29A
With an X2 6000 125w I would go for a bit more juice.

$10 more for 34A

You're good. The 4850 only requires a 450w psu, 550w for crossfire.

I'm running an 8800gt sli setup on a 550w without any problems.

I would choose an RP500. at only 45 bucks it offer 31A of clean stable power on the 12v's.

If you don't trust rosewill then the Xclio 500 Stablepower offers i believe 32A for 10 bucks more and Xclio are a reputable name in power sources.

That TT doesn't say the amperage on the 12's but im assuming it's about 25-26 at the most which is enough for an 8800GTS and HD4850. It would be quite the stretch to run a single 9800GTX though.

However the Xclio stablepower right here

will handle all of them but it won't leave much headroom if you choose a GTX.

EDIT: I forgot to mention though that personally i would go with the RP550 in that price range for 35A which is plenty enough for a quad core and a 9800GTX
