TBH, the old athlon x2 gets left behind by the newer x3. Just a thought what if you put a x3 450 $74 + HD6850 in your comp if your mobo supports the x3 450?

A 6850 will be bottlenecked by you current cpu but 6850 $120ish after MIR is a good bang for the buck card, gtx 550ti and HD6770 are some other $100 and under cards to look into.

Screen res and type of games helps determine what card too.

Your 4850 falls in a bit below the GTS 250, just so you can see what's what ^^.
Gaming FX 8350 / Tuniq Tower 120/ R9 280X / G Skill 12800CL9D 4x4GBXL/ S12D 850w/ GA 990FXA-UD3 /WD640AALS Black, WD1TB FALS x1, / Dell IPS 1920x1080/ Win 10 64
Daily Use x4 965BE 3.8GHZ/GA-790x/R7 265 1GB that doesn't like the 790x-UD4 mobo at all/EA750w/8GB ram/Win 10 64 and a whole bunch o hdds
