I'm going to resist the urge to be a grammar Nazi...

The 4850 is the better card out of those two.

The 4850 is the better card out of those two. However for $110 you can find a better card than that even.

GTX 460 768 for $119 After Rebate
Another one for $109 After Rebate
Or there's ANY of the GTS 450's that start at $114 shipped, minus rebates as well.

It's part of the Professionalism Initiative.

As for the cards, the Radeon HD 4850 is much better but it's a waste of money. For only $10 more you can get the Radeon HD 5770, a card that's more than 15% faster.

That card is on sale right now for like 40 bucks with rebate + coupon code. Thanks for the input though. I am still in college so I guess you can say I am lazy haha. I can't please everyone!

Look over at TigerDirect. They've got 9800GT's refurbed for $40 I think, without any sort of rebate.

The 4850 is NOT worth $110 out of your pocket. Rebate or not. Even more so, since its an XFX card.
