I say 4850 all the way. You will get better framerates and better image quality. I don't think you will see to much bottleneck from either of the cards.

hmm ye was thinking the same, such a shame to waste the HR-03 Plus tho :O!

Sell the cooler then the 4850 costs you less
. Its easy isnt it new card for 40 more than a old secondhand one ?? No contest.
