Worth upgrading to 4850?

I have the current specs in sig, and I game on a 22inch monitor at 1680 x 1050. I play Lord of the Rings Online, Guild Wars, The Orange Box, NWN2, and will be playing SC2, Guild Wars 2, etc. I want to be able to max out all of these (except GW as it is already maxed) at my current resolution, without spending over 200$. So my question is would it be worth upgrading to an HD4850 from my current 8800GTS 320MB?

imo not a big enough gain to justify buying unless you can sell the gts to someone

i definitely think it's worth it. you should get $70-90 for the gts 320 and you can buy several different brand of 4850 for $170 AR shipped at newegg right now. worst case that's $100 for a very significant upgrade.

Yep it's worth it, at 1680x1050 you'll be playing everything maxed with at least 4xAA.
