Definitely 8.9 / 10 for me =] p.s: Its Xfx not Hfx | Report abuse Outlander_04 August 16, 2009 9:31:23 PM 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 | Report abuse skora August 16, 2009 10:58:11 PM 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. | Report abuse xaira August 16, 2009 11:34:42 PM looks good | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>New AMD build.. please review> Related ressources: ForumMy new AMD build ...
