I'm upgrading my video card and think i've narrowed it to either a 4850 or 9800gtx+ based on cost and am trying to keep it around the 140 or less price point. I do 3d work and was wondering if one of these cards would be better than the other. I know neither is ideal and i should be looking at quadro/ fire cards, but don't have the money for one of them at this time. I'm just a casual gamer of TF2 and the occasional rpg.
I've got dual 1680x1050 monitors
asus p5w-dh deluxe mobo
antec 550w ps.
Also, since my mb is xfire capable would it be better for me to grab 2 of those 4850s for 86 bucks floating around lately? I'm just curious if my rig could handle it or if i'd actually see any advantages in what i do.
