Default GTS 250 vs. HD Radeon 4850

Hi wat's up everyone.
Here is my build :
CPU : E8400 @ 3.00 GHz.
Ram : 2x2 GB 667 MHz
Motherboard : Gigabyte 945PL-S3P
GPU : ATI Radeon x1550 ( the thing I'm looking to replace )
Monitor : VA712 17'' monitor with max res. of 1280*1024
So My PSU's fan is noisy so I'm going to replace it, and I was told if I replace my current GPU with a GTS 250, a 500 Wattish PSU will run it easily. So for PSU now I'm good.
But I'm kind of confused now, ( I'm buying locally so there are 2 cards available in my budget ), there is also HD Radeon 4850 and the price difference is like 10$ max so I'd like to go for the better between them.
So main question is GTS 250 vs. HD Radeon 4850, oh and since my GPU slot is PCI-E 1.0 x16 ( not 2.0 ) and since both of those cards are 2.0, which of them will run best in PCI-E 1.0 x16 slot?
Thanks and waiting for recommendations!

The GTS 250 and the HD 4850 are almost matched in performance.
