depends what games you play. some games don't like multi-gpus... make sure the games you play aren't one of them.

to be safe, go with the 4890.

yes, those games have multi gpu support.
Most of the new games have Multi GPU support so you should see performance increase,

Go 4890...and if that proves not to be enough for your tastes you can add another down the line.

go 4850 x2 for the games that dont support multi gpus the 4850 will be enough and the 4850x2 could hold its own against a gtx 285 for only 260 bucks. So the 4850x2 is a easy recomendation.
