Hey guys i am upgrading to an amd built
1.Asus Crosshair IV Formula
2.600W VIP psu
3.2x2 4 gb ram corsair
4.Sapphire Radeon 4890
5.Phenom II x4 965 BE
I dont know whether i should upgrade from 4890 to 5850 or 5870 because the performance difference is small and i dont think its worth the price but still i want to know how you people feel if you want to upgrade from 4890 any ideas?.Right now i play at 1440x900 resolution with all max settings and AA no problems but soon i am going to get 1920x1080 monitor.

I would wait until after you experience 1920 x 1080 with your HD 4890.

If I were you, I would simply wait.

Well, it depends on what games you play really and before you know it, the 5890's will be out and then the 6000 series. If you can find a good deal on a 5870 on craigslist or somewhere else; go for it...

Otherwise, just wait till a price drop! I bought 2 GTX 480;s for under 700 dollars on craigslist new! So I saved myself over 300 dollars; I have seen some 5870's go for around 300.

You have a good GPU so I would recommend you wait until the 5xxx series refresh or the 6xxx series.
