Windows 7: Geforce GTS 250 vs Ati HD4850

Geforce GTS 250 vs Ati HD4850

Since my 5 year old geforce 6800GT died yesterday I need a new graphics card. But I'm not sure on which one to get.

I've seen this ATI 1GB 4850 for 76
AX4850 1GBD3-PH - 1GB Power Color HD 4850, PCI-E 2.0(x16), 1900MHz GDDR3, GPU 625MHz, 800 Cores, DL DVI-I/ HDMI/ D-Sub -

Geforce GTS 250 512MB for 80
ENGTS250/DI/512MD3/A - 512MB Asus GTS 250, 2200MHz GDDR3, GPU 738 MHz, Shader 1836 MHz, 128 Cores + WoW Game* -

But would a 1GB 4850 be better than a 512MB GTS250 at the same price? Or would the 1GB GTS 250 be similar or better than the 4850?

They are pretty much equal,

All depends on which has the features that you want and/or will use.

Can a GeForce GTX 560 TI use GeForce Experience Shadowplay?
As said in the title, i'm wondering if the GTX 560 TI can use Shadowplay. I am on a budget and I don't want to waste $180 on a capture card with the same quality. Hope it will work (PS: if it will work, will I lose performance and quality?)
