The Radeon HD 4850 is an extremely great gaming video card, especially for what you pay. It got rave reviews from AnandTech here:

I prefer DHES (Direct Heat Exhaust System) on my video cards though so take a look at the HIS IceQ 4 version if you can afford the difference and it is available:

You'll get the usual Radeon HD 4850 performance but this version will run cooler, quieter and exhaust all that hot GPU air outside of your case.

haydosrulz, keep in mind that the Radeon HD 4850 is a chip made by ATI and a good performer. Almost any board with that chip on it should be good for gaming, because it is the chip does all of the processing. Xpertvision makes a card with this chip, HIS makes a card with this chip, and so do many others. The makers of the graphics adapters can provide different features with the same graphics chip and that's where you should look to decide which board is right for you.
