Don't you think he should go with a 4870? I mean that systems nice might as well add a nicer card :]

Also what are you aiming for? gaming machine? What games?

Stuff like that

Sweet deal. For 210$ that card will smash the 4850 (unless you overclock like a MAD man).

and it comes with Far Cry 2!

There's also this:

Newegg.com - ASUS EAH4870/HTDI/512M/A Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards its a little faster (GTX Core 216 ties it though) but I think the GTX 260 for $210 + Far Cry 2 can't be beat!
