Hd 4890 Pc

I have saved around $700 for a new gaming Pc. I wanted to know what Brand (Saphire, XFX etc)would be the best option for a HD 4890 and what AMD Processor, Motherboard, RAM, Hard Drive and case combination would give me the best performance with 1920 x 1200 display. I'm not concerned about the DirectX 11 problem since I focus more on performance. THanks!

  1. At last, someone is enlightened on gaming performance over DX11. Not sure what games you play, if you play GTA4/FSX/RTS or any quad-core-hungry titles, you get an X4. Otherwise, a cheaper X3 will do the job nicely.

    The Earthwatts 500W is worth $75. You get the Sonata case for $25. The PSU can power HD 5870.
