My question is very simple. I have this PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm thinking about getting a 9800GT OC and I want to know if that PSU can run it.

If not can you recommend a PSU (under $50) that can?

Secondary question: does a 4870 take less power to run than a 9800GT? I know it seems like a simple question but someone told me that the 4870 actually draws less power.

Tertiary question: what is the math I need to know in order to determine myself if a PSU can handle a card?

It /should/.

No, the 4870 requires (to my knowledge) 2x 6pins.

Yes it can.

Look in the specifications it says 2X 6-Pin

and in the picture you can see both connectors.

If you ever need to get a new PSU for under 50$ this powersupply is a much better brand.

BFB 550 Watt Powersupply $49.99

Trust me just because its 25watts lower does not mean its a crappier Powersupply. Better build quality and reliability.
