I added all the components up and it came to ~$620.

I would go with the HD 4850
over the GTS 250. The two are identical in performance but the HD 4850 is cheaper and your motherboard supports Crossfire which will offer a good upgrade path in the future.
Wrong. I've used both the 4850 and the 250, and can say that it would be much better to go with the 250. Not only do you get physx and cuda support, but it just out performs the 4850 in pretty much every game I've tested, and it runs cooler. I am a MAJOR GTS250 fan, and own one. I'm in love with it. For the price, I just feel that it can't be beat.
