remember guys... his previous card is a top of the line card.
Remember, my 960GT plays most modern games at 16x/16x. He"ll be fine with the AA levels on the 4850, ESPECIALLY at that resolution. He won't gain much if anything from going to a 4870, unless he upgrades his monitor.
S my conclusion stands. If he's getting a new monitor, get the 4870. If he's not getting a new monitor, get the 4850, and do something else with the saved $100.
