If it were me, grab the x4 so it's as future proof as possible. Also the quad will be a better multitasker. On the rosewill, you have to realize over time a PSU degrades in performance and the 4890 will probably draw a good bit of juice.

what would be a better HD? I would like to get as fast HD as possible. Amount of space doesn't matter as long as it more than 100GB.
