I'm not sure if any HD 4xxx is available on B&S but probably can't find any of that generation, cheaper.
I had the 1GB version and it stayed cool and quiet. Easy on power too.
Back to topic, my buddy pulled the trigger last week on the card Headshot is looking at and he said so far so good. He said it takes less power than that Tom review showed. He also has an XFX so he tested them alone and then together. He's very happy with his purchase.
