Currently have a hd4850 with 512mb, that the fan went out of, i can get fans for cheap but i figured since the card came out in 2008 that even the new budget cards would be better. I bought a r7 250 thinking it would dominate, but after looking at specs i'm thinking a 10 dollar fan would work unless i wanted to spend more than 100 dollars. i'm rebuilding the computer in a new case for my father, i would like him to have a computer that will last him years, hes had his last one for almost 10 years i think. The specs after i finish will be Motherboard: MSI x58 platinum with 6gb CPU: i7 920 Mem: 6gb of CORSAIR ddr3 1333 Hard Drive: 256gb ssd plus 1tb hd I will be running windows 7 any advice on wither i should send that card back and order a better one or stick with the hd4850 and order a new fan. He doesn't do a lot of gaming and the ones he does play are 10 years old or older. Thanks for the help.

R7 250 is actually less powerful than 4850 so better get new fans for your 4850.
