Photoshop picks it up automatically. The message PS throws up is simply to direct you to the most recent upgrades. The 4850 is major overkill for Photoshop.

He means that it is a pretty powerful gpu just to edit images. Since Photoshop is 2d and that tends to be a 3d gaming card. Regardless it should work fine.
