It depends on which games you'll be playing, assuming you'll be gaming. 4850 is faster on some games and 9800 is faster on others.

I had the same dilemma, as stated above the 4850 is slightly better....but I ended up going with the 9800gtx+ because I only play games occasionally and I fold most days of the weeks. The 9800 gets better ppd for F@H than the 4850.

If you dont fold....4850 is a nice card.

Ya.. I don't think its a good idea to trade with a complete new guy because then you can't do anything if he scams the 9800GTX's from him
