Hi guys!

5 min ago I was sure in buying me 7770, but then I found this comparison:
http://www.hwcompare.com/121/radeon-hd-4890-1gb-vs-rade...
where this card was beaten by the old 4890...

my question is
if these cards have the same price which one'll be better for my system?

specs:
Phenom ii x4 965
4 ddr3 ram
500w psu

4890 is faster but doesn't support direct x 11, only 10. So I'd still choose the 7770 as it's a newer generation and does support directx 11.

Never use hwcompare for real world comparison.

Here is a REAL world comparison between the HD7770 and HD4870(close in performance to the 4890), the HD7770 wins every time, uses MUCH less power AND supports DX11.

You would not even be able to run Battlefield 3 or Crysis 3 on an HD4890 as it does not support DirectX11.

dude ati 7770 is a very good card it has new features and also needs less power

4890 was a very good card of its time but doesnt have the dx11 and it's gpu is old 55nm

your link is wrong see this link 7770 vs 4890

http://www.hwcompare.com/11965/radeon-hd-4890-1gb-vs-ra...

if 4890 is avaliable new in case then how much is price if you want more performance then 7770 then u can buy gtx 650ti or 7790
and one other option is 650ti boost

but this is in only case if you investing more
but i think 7770 is best !!! in low price it gives good performance in 1080p
