GeForce 9800 GTX and 500W PSU?

I want to buy new video card but i'm concern that my PSU is not powerful enough. There is EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX(G92) at newegg
The card required minimum 450W 24 Amp PSU. My PSU 500W has 2 12V rails 22Amp each.
Would I be safe to buy this card or should I go with something less power hungry like Radeon 4850 for the same prise?

I have a HD4850 on an EW500 and it has plenty of juice to spare. You will be perfectly fine.
