For 199 dollars thats a pretty fair price for a card that will last you a few years at the most......or you could go for the new geforce fx series card...check out this site for a fair price http://www.scorptec.com.au
Haven't tried one myself, but I looked them up at several retail sites. They run about $150(USDollars), so $199 is a bit high...of course, once you pay shipping...
AFA performance, I relaly dont know. I hardly heard about the 4800, as it was pretty quickly eclipsed by the 5xxx series.
Erm...I guess what I'm saying overall is...I really dont know for sure, but, IMO, If you're happy with your current card, stick with it. If you can afford the new one and think that it will improve things(and that you wont be able to afford upgrading to the 5xxx series any time soon), then go for it.
the Ti4800 is suppose to be a good card...between the 4200 and 4600. It was much cheaper than the Ti4600 but that was when it first came out...you might find the better 4600 for about the same price these days.
