Summary: AMD has certainly engineered a winner with their Radeon HD 4850 series. This card, positioned in the $199 segment, reaches unprecented performance levels thanks to its excellent architectural improvements. In most benchmarks it can beat the GeForce 9800 GTX which is almost $70 more expensive.
Pros: Best price/performance in the $200 segment, Affordable, 7.1 Audio via HDMI included now, Single slot cooler, Very quiet in idle, Quiet under load, HDMI+HDCP+Audio, Excellent performance/watt, CrossFireX support, Good accessory package, PCI-Express 2.0 support, DirectX 10.1 support
Cons: Can not take the performance crown, Limited overclocking potential, Tends to run a bit hot
