But the ATI 4850 is fantastic. As the quoted poster pointed out, it runs almost everything you throw at it in good quality, and costs next to nothing.

Click for proof of 4850
The problem is that the CPU will bottleneck a card like that so much, that there will be no benefit to using it over a lower end Radeon HD 4000 series card. It would be added money that would be wasted, as the price tag would go from $65 for a 4650 to $100 for a 4850.
