Heya guys, Yep 4850 is now dead :(  I'm looking to buy a new pc next year but I'd prefer to wait to see what Haswell brings before i buy a new rig.

So i need a replacement card, but obviously it would be great to be able to use it in the next system i buy.

I realise I'll be bottlenecked by various components, cpu - power - pcie 2.0 etc but anything will be an improvement over the 4850 i guess.

Was thinking of the gtx560 ti ( 448? ) or radeon 6870 - 6950 - 7000 series but I'm not sure exactly what my current rig can handle ?

Thanks for replies so far and sorry for failed 1st post again
