no motherboard needs a 500w psu, I've never heard of a motherboard having minimum power requirements, most systems would run on a 250w-300w psu with plenty of headroom if the psu is a halfway decent unit and there was no beefy video card to worry about, basically power supply requirements are based on which video card you have in your system and any decent 400w psu should handle that system without any problems since total system power draw with a 9800GT is ~ 250w at full load according to reviews, even a 4870 only draws about 300w at full load, and those wattages are for the total system power draw...
