I'm currently running a 4870 in my gaming rig, and was looking for a little more kick to get me through some of my higher level needs, such as GTA4 and Stalker:CoP.
I've got the slots, CPU and PSU to do any number of upgrades.
My initial thought was to put another 4870 in, or possibly a 4870x2, but now i'm thinking twice.
I could crossfire with a 4890, or just move up to a larger card.
Any suggestions? What would be the most cost effective?

I would say Crossfire another 4870 they're about $120 these days. That would be the best price performance ratio decision. Getting a 4890 wont be good cause it will underclock itself to match the 4870.
Yes, you can add HD4870, this is the best solution if you have a limited budget in addition performances are still good (just a little bit better than HD5870)
