On the Budget front nVidia dropped there prices on many of there cards to get them to match the 4800series, so for current games they are pretty much even (9800gtx vs 4850)... but if you compare scores from Vantage 08, the 4850 series starts to pull away suggesting that for future gaming the 4800series is a better long term budget purchase.
