4890 or 4870 Tags: Radeon Graphics Product Last response: July 17, 2009 1:23 AM in Graphics & Displays Share xX StitcH July 16, 2009 10:34:05 PM I am debating getting a 4870 or a 4890. I have a Samsung 22" 1680x1050. I'm thinking I probably don't need the 4890 but I'm not sure. I just want some opinions. System specs: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000 (2.6GHz) 4GB Corsair DDR2-800 Radeon HD 4830 PC P&C 500W PSU (35 amps on 12V rail) Some rubbish MSI mobo (no overclocking options) Windows XP (32 bit) Thanks in advance!

I think anything less than $50 is worth the upgrade. xX StitcH July 17, 2009 1:23:37 AM $45 difference. $194.99 vs. $149.99. Both with free shipping. I'm leaning towards the 4890 now because I think I am going to get a GIGABYTE 790GX and a Phenom II 940BE since Newegg has a combo for only $260. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
