Hey guys I am kinda stuck with how to about my upgrade for my video card. I have a xfx radeon 4890 and I was thinking of whether to go with a 5*** series card or just buying a second 4890 :pt1cable:  I can pretty much max out any game so far with the exception of a few games but I just feel like more graphics power. I really dont give a crap about dx11 right now and I believe the 4890 is more powerful than alot of 5 series cards. I have an Asus 890gx board right now which will run 2 cards at 8x/8x which I heard is still pretty damn good. My processor is a phenom 965 which i run at 3.8ghz for everyday use. I do not believe my processor will BN 2 4890's. SOOooo :pt1cable:  what would u other people decide in this situation?? Sny input welcome thanks guys :sol:

I think you can get another HD4890 and CF it. That is a good option, it would be faster than a HD5850. Save a little and wait for HD6xxx maybe!

No problemo Amigo!! Hey let me ask you 1 more thing do you have 2 4890's in CF?? The reason I ask is because the only thing I am scared of is that I know alot of games do not scale very well with CF. So I just don't wanna get another 4890 and then get a game that I really like or something and have it whack out and be un-playable because I have CF. Do you think this will effect me 2 the point where it is not worth it??

geting another 4890 requires very powerfull PSU { which is not recomanded } you can go for 5850 its to much stronger than 4890 ..& has a lot new things Like DX 11.... Single 5850 is enough to beat all games ... nothing of 4890 is higher than 5850 ...so go for it ..... BUT 4890 is very power full VGA ... you should be little Crazy to lose that ANGLE ...i wouldnt do that if i were you ...
