HD 4870 is probably the best followed closely by 8800 GT. AMD went aggressive on pricing with HD 4800 cards because the R600 fiasco had cost them badly in terms of brand and market share. so AMD wanted to rebuild their image and they did that successfully with the HD 4800 cards. that generation had the fiercest price wars ever seen between the GPU vendors.

i was thinking the 5850 too. but then again this is pretty baseless. and i would agree with the 4870 also.
