You dont know how many owners the ebay 4850 has been through so you dont know if you will get the second lifetime warranty on it, i have that exact card and it is quite nice, but with the 57xx cards out i would go for them instead, less power and you know you get the full warranty. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
