Ok guys and gals. I'm about to make the next big purchase for my new gaming rig.

So far this is what I have.

AMD 720 BE
gigabyte UD4P
Corsair 750TX
2 Western caviar black's 640gb
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)

I currently cant decide between getting the 4890 or 4870. Right now I'm only going to be buying one and later on I will be a 2nd to crossfire them. My screen is a dell 23in 1920X1080.

this is a no brainer , so Im going to assume you are very intelligent and the no-brain thing fooled you because you do have a brain .

The 4890 is stronger . Buy it
