It doesn't have a 6pin pcei connector so you would need an adapter, but it should power up to a 4850.

is the 18 amps 12v rail fine for it?

should be fine for 4830. or 4770 but you would need a 500 for a 4850 and a 550 or more for 4870 :D

Its enough, a 4770 is newer and uses less power, just above the PCIe slot power therefore requireing a PCIe power plug, like invisik said it *should* power up to a 4850.
