Wow, instead of going away with my computer I just might sell off some parts and get a cheap 4850 .

With a 9800GTX I wouldn't be looking for a new card for quite a while.

I like xbit a lot. One of the very few sites to test the newer Source engine games.

huh? the 4850 competes with the 9800GTX and beats it. the 4870 competes with the GTX260 and beats its also. The only GTX260 i have seen for $300 and less is MSI with the ugly picture =/ EVGA and XFX are still $379

MSI cards are crappy, or at least the one's I've had were. I've had two MSI branded gpu's die on me. Luckily newegg was there to bail me out or I would have wasted quite a-lot of money. You get what you pay for, with EVGA and XFX you get a great RMA service and wonderful customer service, with MSI you don't really get those luxuries.
For your health!

Xbitlabs used "ATI Catalyst beta for Radeon HD 4000 (sample_vista32-64_HD_4800_Series_5.exe)" instead of Catalyst 8.7 Beta %-)
