Currently i am running a phenom II 940 BE 2 3.4ghz, 8gb ddr2 1066mhz ram, 1000watt psu, and a hd 4890 video card. i found a good deal on the hd 4850 x2 and I was lookin for some feedback on whether it would be worth the upgrade on a 23in 1920x1080 monitor. Also any feedback on mixed crossfire would be nice because perhaps I could still use the other card if i decide to buy the hd 4850 x2. thanks in advance

2 HD 4890s beat a single HD 4850X2 in CrossFire,so i would say go for another
HD 4890 and CrossFire it instead of getting a HD 4850X2(Since you already have one 4890)

Yes, get another 4890 and crossfiring it...
You'll be happy with them. :) 
Make sure u have a good airflow on your case, they produces more heat than before...
