I will be getting a graphics card to put with my system (in sig below) and am still not sure of a 4770, 4850 or perhaps something else?
Budget is max of $300 (preferably less)
What is likely to be the better buy? (in a few weeks time)

Graphics cards are the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT component in a gaming system.

Not the CPU, not the RAM, not the case, not anything else.

Your budget is too small in my opinion but if you insist then the 4850.
Take a look at the VGA charts at www.tomshardware.com for performance ranking.

Don't skimp.

Buy the 4850. Its performance is generally on par with the GTS 250 but its cheaper.

GTS 250 does run cooler though.

The 4850 is only about 5% faster than the 4770, so if the 4850 is much more expensive, then just go for the 4770.
