a 4850 is a good mid end card, should play most games on med/high settings.

Difference is company. The GTX 285 is from Nvidia, and the HD 4890 is from ATI.

They're both pretty close to each other, but the GTX 285 wins out a little bit further. Though the performances from them are similar, the HD 4890 gives more bang for your buck because it's a lot cheaper than the 285.

With that screen though, it wouldn't really matter because either one will give you good gaming performance. Just depends on how much you'd want to spend.
