and now i see a couple benchmarks that shows that the new 9800GT is like HD4850 and even better than it and cost just 150$!!
does the new brand 9800GT is really like my card and even better than it?

There is, literally, no difference between the 9800 GT and 8800 GT.

Do you have a link we could check out?

HD4850≈9800GTX>9800GT=8800GT

The 65nm 9800GT is literally identical to the 8800GT. There is also a 55nm version of the 9800GT but it is also identical in every way except that it:
  • Supports HybridPower (meh)
  • Possibly overclocks a bit better*
  • Maybe consumes a bit less power* ;) 
  • Maybe runs a little cooler*
    *This is my own baseless speculation, I haven't heard any reports of this actually being the case

    Now the HD4850 is generally faster than the 9800GTX but this depends a lot on the game and level of AA that you use, hence my claim that they are about equal. Both are certainly faster than the 9800GT. The 4850 also has DX10.1 support which may be relevant at some point.

    Running E8400 and HD4850 on an ECS mATX motherboard and my machine scored 13,504 benchmarks on 3dMark06.

    Remember the drivers for the HD4850 are not quite up to speed with NVIDIAS when it comes to doing the 3dMark06 benchmark and doesn't have much support from 3rd party GPU tuning applications like RivaTuner.

    Actual game play with HD4850 has great image quality and physics.

    There are a number of benchmarks online that show the HD4800 series doing very well with Crysis.

    Ok I'll probably get the 4850 1GB if I buy an HP, and 4850 512 if I get a dell.

    The thing is I've heard a lot of bad things about HP...and my last computer was custom built and it didn't last very long. My current computer is a dell and I've had it for 4 years, I want something that will last that long.

    Why the difference? the 512mb should be enough but if you game at high res or they're the same price get the 1gb.

    The 9800GT is still a pretty good IMHO but it's starting to show it's age now as it's more than a couple of years old. If you have any more questions then start a new thread as this one is a year and a half old.
