If you are going to have some extra cash lying around, you can find a 9800GTX for about 200USD

The HD 4850 actually performs slightly better in most cases than the 9800GTX.

True but Nvidia is more reliable for me and is a bit cheaper.

The HD 4850 is cheaper than the 9800GTX and performs better. Forget brand favoratism, it doesn't get you anywhere. Everywhere you look the HD 4850 is a better purchase than the GTX.
