Need help with new video card

My old video card just died. :( I originally had an EVGA e-GeForce 8800GTS with 640 megs of ram and ram went bad in it, so it's basically fried. I got it in November of 2007 for a whopping $579.99 when it first came out because it was the first video card (I do believe) that supported Direct X 10.

My biggest question is how will this video card...http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0306914 compare to my old video card which was here...http://www.nvidia.com/page/geforce_8800.html

Price is an issue. I would like to stay below $200, well below $200 preferrably.

  1. Well I know the 4850 performs a little bit better than the 8800.
  2. Did you buy from evga/xfx they offer lifetime warranty see if the manufactor can replace it. If not time for an upgrade. The 4850 is noticeable faster but i would recommend a 4870 instead since there priced similarly.

    Whats the rest of your pc spec? cpu,ram,psu,etc??
  3. Intel E6850 Dual Core processor, 2 gigs of DDR2-800 and 2 Raptor 150gb hard drive (10k rpm drives) in RAID. Just a very modest setup to play games without killing my budget.
  4. I contacted EVGA earlier today but I, unfortunately, forgot to register the video card when I first got it. Talked to support and they told me to email rma@evga.com to see if they could help me. I am looking at worst case scenario as I know I probably wont luck out on getting a refurbed card from EVGA.
