I'm looking for a new card, thinking either 2nd hand 8800GTX or HD4850. Which card will best suit my system?

Im in South Africa and the prices are:
$260 for new HD4850
$221 for 2nd hand 8800GTX

Basically I wana know which card is better and by how much my system will bottleneck each of them

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.

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.
