Searching for a new card

So im in the market for a new video card as my 2900xt is starting to show its age. I have my eye on a nice new 4890 but my only fear is it will be bottlenecked by my Q6600 2.4ghz. Other concern is i only play at 1280 x1024. I don't want to rule out the fact that i might overclock my cpu and get a new monitor but thats not going to happen any time soon.
So what do you guys think?
Thanks.

  1. 4870 should be fine even the 4850/4770 would kill 1280x1024 or get the 4890 an clock to bout 3ghz the q6600 are great overclockers
  2. Cool thanks for your advice.
    But if the price difference between the 4870 and the 4890 was $20, would it be better to just go with the 4890
  3. yeah then get the 4890 if are planning to overclock get an after market cpu cooler
