    Total $730. Later add another HD 4890 when it's $150 or less, if you need it.


    You can reduce this price a bit, but I wouldn't. For example:

    $20 less with WD3200AAKS (but you lose some speed and half the room)
    $20 less with 650TX instead of 750TX (but it's less suitable for Crossfire later)

    Use Windows 7 RC for the rest of this year, it's free.
  2. Here are some numbers:

    See how one HD 4890 smokes Far Cry 2 - over 60 fps even at 1920x1200. It even beats the GTX 285 in some benchmarks :)

    Left 4 Dead is less demanding, and you'll get ridiculous numbers like 90 fps.

    I think the 650TX will do nicely after all, because with these games you will NOT need a second HD 4890. It's still powerful enough for two of those cards, in case some future game you like needs them. You'll just have to buy some $3 molex-PCI-E adapters for it if/when you want Crossfire.
  3. Have you considered the 4770? The ATI 4770 cannot be overlooked, especially for its price and power combination. I have some really good ideas for a smoking gaming system with incredible deals at my website: http://www.landen99.com/index.htm
