If there isnt anything that you need it to do that it cant then dont upgrade now, only upgrade if you need it to be better, you have a pretty good system already so there isnt much of a need to upgrade.

Only thing I would get is another 4890 and get a faster hard drive like the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB, if your system can't do what you want. Both of those will provide a good performance boost to help last through 2010.

I think that system should last at least another year without any problems. You could always add another video card or upgrade to a better one in the unlikely event that what you have is not enough.

That ought to be fine until you're ready to replace the whole thing with an i-something machine. You can probably carry over at least the PSU when you do. Although if you leave everything as-is, this wouldn't be a bad "second" machine to have for several years.
