Hi there, the cable comes with your power supply, not the graphics card.
You will need 2 x 6pin PciE connectors for each 4850.

(so you need a PSU with at least 4 x 6 pin Pci express cables if you want to crossfire them)
Although you can buy adaptors that convert other connections into 6 pin PciE.

Still the cables you seek should come with the PSU

For one card you need two PciE 6pin cables.

What PSU do you have? ill check to see if it has the required connections.

And if it dosent ill point you in the direction of the adaptors you will need.

ok, well i couldent find any info about ur PSU to see what connections it has.
But i did learn the 4850 only needs one pcie 6 pin power supply not two. (sorry thought they were the same as my 4870's!) Below is a pic of the plug you need. Your power supply hopefully has one of these unused on it somewhere.
6 pin pcie plug

no i dont think so, just leave that for now.

Also, just to confirm you do have the screen cable pluged into the back of the graphics card and not the motherboard?
