All of the 4850s if you can find them are dual-slot cards and are basically all the same ecxcept for maye warrenties and clock sppeds (overclock vs. stock clock). If I may ask do you specifically neeed a 4850 or are you willing to go a little higher?
Not sure about 2 inches thin but I would agree with shadow if you got money to spend, 2 inches in height is a little high for a card, looking at PowerColor's website both our cards are the same height.
Go for the 5770. Im kicking myself @ the moment for buying A sapphire 4850 instead. Direct X11 And shader model 5.1/5.0 Are worth the extra cash
go for the 5770. Its equal to HD 4870/GTX 260 so its quite a bit better than the obsolete 4850. Also you get DX 11, eyefinity and tons more.
