    The XFX HD-489A-ZDFC Radeon HD 4890 Video Card specifications state that it needs at least a 500 Watt power supply. The XCLIO STABLEPOWER 500 Watt Power supply should be enough, but if I were you I would look around at a power supply that puts out a little more (at least 550 Watts). The reason for this is the components will put less of a load on the power supply and give it a longer life.

    The OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600 Watt power supply is $74 here with free shipping costs:

    +1 I would say the same thing. It probably would but you would probably be pushing it to it's limits. I would look at least a 550w with about 25A split between 2 +12V rails or 50A-60A on a single +12V rail.
