Default video card reccomendation

I am going to buy a 4850 for my next build but dont know which one to buy. I need an HDMI output but other than that they all look pretty much the same to me. Any suggestions? I dont want to spend over 160-170 on the card.

Get the Sapphire 4850 that's dualslotted. I think all 4850's have HDMI converters.

All AMD cards from the HD 2000 series started giving those out... just get any HD 4850 and you are good
