Main question is I have an antec earthwatts 500w power supply. Can I upgrade the video card to a 4850 1gb with this PSU? Or would I need another one? THanks!

no, that psu is more than enough for a 4850. although why buy a 4850, what price are you getting it for?

Hey thanks for the reply! I got it on sale for 94.99 with a 20 dollar rebate so it comes to 74.99. Didn't want to spend any more money lol. From what I heard its a decent upgrade.
