9800 GTX+ for $160 shipped vs 4850 for $169.99-$30mir+$8shipping=$148 on newegg btw.
the thing is that i just bought 4850 last night and today i found out 9800gtx+ @ $160shipped!
i did some research the 9800gtx+ is a little better than 4850 in most games. should i just leave it as it is? btw i m upgrading from 8800gts 640
Still, the difference is small, and not really noticeable. So, it's a matter mail in rebates. 4850 is either $10 more or $10 less, depending on wether you count in mir. There is also issue of heat. 4850 runs hotter and vents hot air inside the case. If you have a well ventilated case, 4850 is fine, and cost $10 less after mir. If not, 9800gtx+.
