I would say the 4850 only because you need the extra power to run your native resolution and a 5670 is not going to cut it. I take it your budget is around $100?

Did the 256bit gives us more power than 128bit card? And Does HD 4850 fits on to my Zebronics Bijli?

the 4850 is the better choice there. the 4850 can outperform the 5670 so really the only good thing about the 5670 is the Dx11 support. but from what i heard its best not to have a low profile card like the 5670 using Dx11 because it will be even slower

if you're concern with your PSU (and don't have the budget to replace it) maybe you better off with 5670. if not 4850 is clearly the better choice. if you're interested with DX11 stuff you better look for something better than 5670. at least look for 5770.

It will fit, looks like a good mid tower case.

Do you plan on using 3 monitors? If so then the 5670 is far superior than the 4850. The 5670 is not powerful enough to drive 3 1080 screens in eyefinity gaming. For the cost of a new 1080 screen you could easily get a new 5770 or 5830 (when it comes out). Frankly getting a better graphics card would be a bit higher on my priority list than getting more monitors that your current card cannot handle.

Forget both of them and save up some more until you can afford an HD5770. For gaming at 1080p the HD4850 will be acceptable but not particularly good.

Well if you want to max out settings and be able to apply a bit of AA in most games I would say the HD5770.
Forget about the HD5670 btw, it's not good for that resolution.

Another option would be trying to find a decent price on a used HD4870.
