Alright guys, I'm having trouble choosing out a video card.

vs

Powercoler hd 4850 ($140 shipped)

Diamond hd 4850 ($142 shipped)

Alright guys. I have about $150 exact to spend on a video card. Which is a better card? The way I'm seeing it is that 4850 edges out the gtx+ at higher resolutions, though I won't be palying at a super high resolution. I could be wrong though.

Also the heat issues on the 4850 do worry me a bit, while that's not so much a concern on the gtx+.

So which one do I go for? Which one is better to perform in games like cod5, oblivion, crysis, far cry 2, etc? Also if I do go with the 4850, which company is better? Thanks!

you have about 150 exactly? makes no sense. Go with the 4850.
Gear:
PRS SE Singlecut, blue with stoptail (my baby)
Line 6 Spider III 75 (shut up)
Epiphone Les Paul standard
Cheapo Yamaha nylon string
even more cheapo Fender steel string acoustic

XFX 9800 is much better compared to those, according to the specs on the webpage.
Which are most likely wrong, anyway, gaming thread or computer thread.
