  1. You did build it right? i hope you didn't buy it online somewhere cuz then it musta cost a tonne!

    btw is your motherboard Crossfire ready? - Cuz I don't think a 4890 needs that much power xD
    I think your PC is a little higher than mid grade, its actually really good. Definitely
    8.9 / 10 for me =]

    p.s: Its Xfx not Hfx ;)
  2. psu is overkill

    650 watt for a single 4890

    750 watt for a crossfire set up

    you can also probably get cheaper 1333 MHz RAM without affecting performance
    look for 7-7-7-20 or lower timings and under 1.7 volts

    That will save you a bit
  3. What size monitor? If its 1920x1080 or larger, the 4890 is nice. If you're just playing on a 1680x1050, then you can cut some and get a 4870 1 gb for $130 and still not use all the GPU.
  4. looks good
