Actually, after further research, it looks like you would want the Accelero S1 rev.2 for a 4850.

Don't forget what you now consider quiet when that fan gathers dust it will drive you crazy. Nothing wrong with a big, expensive, power hungry card to play games in your htpc but it's got to be fanless imo. I have nothing against low rpm 120/140mm fans, in fact I have 4 in my htpc but those tiny gfx card fans are a no no.
