What he meant was 'Keep it in the same thread'. Now you have 3 separate threads about the same problem.. :non: 

anyways, check for temperatures, so nothing is throttling because of overheating. And make sure everything is running at the correct clocks in any case...
Coretemp, Realtemp or Speedfan for temperatures, CPU-Z and GPU-Z for the clocks and stuff, the new version of GPU-Z show temps as well...

Does the mobo have multiple PCI-E slots?
Make sure the card is plugged into the main/first one.
Some mobo's don't/can't switch the lanes and are stuck at certain combos like 16x, 4x, make sure the card is in a full 16 lane slot.

My XFX HD4890 also has a low FPS. I think XFX HD4890 is bad pdoduct.
I don't know my opinion is right or wrong.

When I compare the XFX HD4890 with the XFX HD4870. XFX HD4870 scores higher than score XFX4890.

3DMark06 scrore
XFX HD4870 --> around (14500-15000) fps
XFX HD4890 --> 12691 fps

Dirt2 scrore
with :
resolusion 1920x1080, AA 4x, and other full high
XFX HD4870 --> 60fps
XFX HD4890 --> 43-47fps
