Maybe the fan on the 4850 broke while you were swapping motherboards? 113 is insanely hot and will damage your card. I would open the case and make sure the fan on the GPU is actually working. And yes a 570 will work on your motherboard, but you would probably want to get a new power supply.

Broke fan is possible. Did you try cleaning the cards heat sink before putting it back in the computer?
