Actually, they are roughly the same age age. It also depends on wheter it's a GTX 260 with 192 shader cores or the better GTX 260 with 216 shader cores.

Even though you don't game much, in this case a GTX 260 216 / 1.8GB is a 'better' card.

Those 'techs' are full of sh*t.

In the interim-

Try running the ClearType wizard.

Right click on the desktop select:

personalize > Display > Adjust ClearType text > and then follow the prompts.

Why would you put a 4850 with a 975? That makes no sense.

Haha I was thinking the same thing. Any ways, if the screen shows a fuzzy picture and text, and/or there are black borders around the screen inside the bezel, you'll need to adjust the scaling options in CCC.
