I am in the process of building a high performance system. I am looking at the combo; XFX nForce 750i SLI Extreme Motherboard - NVIDIA nForce 750i, 45nm Support, Socket 775, ATX, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, Gigabit LAN, S/PDIF, USB 2.0, Firewire, Serial ATA, RAID w/ Intel core duo E8400 processor and a, the XFX GeForce GTS 250 Core Edition Video Card - 1024MB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, (2) DVI, SLI Ready video card,
AND
The ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard w\Intel E8400 core duel processor
XFX HD-577A-ZHFC, and the Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card.
I am undecided about which combo will give me the best performance and allow me the ability to upgrade to say a high end Quad core processer in the future.

ATi has the best graphics cards out at the moment, so go with the crossfire ready solution.

The 4890 is a little faster than the 5770, but the 5770 has DX11. The 5770 also uses less power. Personally, I would get the 5770 because of its lower power and DX11 support, but if you don't care for DX11 support, then the 4890 would be the better choice.
