Huh? 500W should be enough for a 4850 or even a 4870 as long as you dont go crossfire with it. Whats the amperage on the 12V rails of that PSU?

4870 is 150w and 4850 is 110w so a good 500W should be fine. There are several apevia 500W PSU. The wattage is about 270 to 300 toward to 12v rails. It should work. But if you need a good soild PSU, take a look at this $75 Corsair 650tx. A little bigger what you need but a good PSU at a good price.
