You haven't told us what card it is, so how are we going to suggest a card of equal value?

With the exception of the 3870, those are all budget cards. The HD4850 is good for gaming, yes.

I seriously doubt they'd let you RMA it, but it's worth a try I guess. If there's any visible damage then it's pretty much a straight up no.
