4770 will perform better at resolutions up to 1440X900 (high settings). For higher resolutions, the performance will be similar because the 9800GT has more memory, but smooth frame rate is not guaranteed for both cards at these resolutions with high settings (for modern games).

look into the GT240SC by EVGA
it might be better then the two you are looking at and cheaper.

However if i had to pick from the two you listed i would pick the 9800 because you can always add a 2nd one at a later date and then a third card as a PhysX card or when you upgrade from the 9800 in the future you can use the 9800 as a dedicated PhysX card. this would give you the most bang for your money.
plus nvidia has some great Driver support.

But,I think a GTS 250 requires a good psu too!Which PSU do u have?

EDIT: I think a 9800GT will perform better than the HD 5670 and GT240 as it has a 256bit memory and 1 gb of vram(I think,Not sure)Only in some case were the hd 5670 and gt240 came up!

The HD4850 I linked is on par with that GTS 250 but $42 less(not counting the MIR)

zerovit,

Which is ur monitor and wats its resolution,If its a monitor with resolutions(like 1600 x 1200, 1280 x 1024) etc ,U can get the 512mb,! 1GB will be an overkill,If u have resolution more than 1680 x 1050,Then go for the 1gb version.

And wat abt ur PSU,These gfx cards need a gud psu too!
I think the 4850 will won due to its 256bit memory bandwidth .HD 5750 will perform higher only at some instances!

EDIT:HD5xxx has DX11 and Shader model 5

No, the HD5750 performs better at all resolutions and offers DX11 and much greater power efficiency.
If you have sources saying otherwise from the "INTERNET" then give a link :p

Did you even look at the links you posted? They show they opposite of what you are saying and exactly what I am saying.
You are giving bad advice. If he wants to spend $100 he should get the HD4850 512mb. If he wants to spend $130 he should get the HD5750. The $132 dollar HD4850 makes no sense at all from any perspective.
That his monitor is 1920x1080 really means he should be spending a bit more for at least an HD5770 however as all of these other cards are bit weak for that resolution(though still capable on medium settings.)
