Based on the 16amp rating for the two +12 volt rail (16amps each) this is a PSU to stay away from.
Here is a Antec basic same 550watt rating but substantially more powerful for the price difference well worth it. http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/550W-Antec-Basiq-Plus-Mo...

Thanks for that but Scan says that PSU doesn't support SLI/Crossfire, do you think it can handle 2 4850's in crossfire?

The one you linked to wont the Antec will. Although I would recommend a PSU with stronger +12 volt rail like this one http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/550W-Antec-Truepower-New... (staying modular)
