Currently I have a Sapphire 4870 1GB DDR5 and I can upgrade it to Sapphire 4890 Vapor-x for 50$.
The point is, I have used my 4870 for about 8 months and I think it's a good deal.
Any ideas? thx

Eh, $50 is a bit much for an extra 15-20% performance imo. If you are going to upgrade the HD5850 is what you should be looking at.

5850 is more expensive than that.

Yes, I know that. It's also much better, DX11, much more power efficient and overclocks a huge amount.

The performance difference is not enough. It will not be noticeable in most games.
