You're running at a low resolution. A $300 GPU will perform around the same as a $150 at your resolution. I say keep your 4850. You will see some performance gains but not enough to justify the money you're spending.

This is your best bet for a 4850.

ok, so you think that this card will still perform as good as the 4870, because of my resolution?

(or at least really close to similar?)

This will give you an idea of how the HD 4850 performs compared to the 4870 and a standard GTX 260: Overclockers Club - HD 4850 Review
