Radeon 4850 or 4870 for my build

Hey guys I been having a hard time deciding whether I should get the radeon 4850 or 4870. I need your guys help picking out a card for me.

The 4850 im looking at cost at around $80 dollar and the 4870 is around $130 dollars (50 dollars difference). The games I am playing are crysis, starcraft 2, resident evil 5, and GTA 4. I would like to play these games at max settings with good fps. So which card will give me the best price/performance ratio. Here is my computer spec. Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.

Dell 2007fp 20" LCD (1600x1200 max resolution)
AMD athlon II x4 630 2.8ghz
4Gig ram OCZ memory
500w OCZ power supply
Creative Sound Blaster audigy 2 zs

  1. i'll keep those card in consideration. Is 128bit gddr5 better than 256bit gddr3?
  2. Many factors count for the performance of the card.The ones you're looking are also important. One compensates for other!

    Overall, Performance of HD4870 and HD5770 is almost comparable.That card is highly overclockable too :)

    And at your monitor's resolution It will perform very good.
