The 250 is a great card ..... last X-mas, I extended life of my son's 775 based system another year with one.

I also suggest the 250, though a 4850 is an excellent card too. If you keep your cards for a while, include the manufacturer warranty length in your decision as well.

Full disclosure . . . I also have a 250 in one of my rigs and I like it a lot. But I wanted to be fair and use objective data, ie, the Tom's report.

Every card is new card and has a 2-years warranty on it .
I'm not going to OC,I don't need PhysX.I only afraid about card's temperature cause it's hot where I live.In summer the open-air temperature can be 43°C (~109°F)
I think 5670 and 4770 lack of raw power so only 4850 & 250 left
Is the 4850 cooler than 250?
And If I pick 250 then what should I pick ?

The real temperature difference will be from the quality of the cooler. A 250 with a good cooler will run cooler than a single slot 4850 and the opposite is true as well. With those ambient temps it is a good idea to get a card with a good cooler.

Wrong. The 250 is slightly faster, but the two cards are considered comparable:
