Ugrade or X-Fire?

Hello,
What's up...my question is, should I upgrade from my HD 4890 or should I just buy another and X-Fire? I'm not in the loop on all the curent GFX's, so what would be the best option, and BTW, my budget is around $200.

  1. Depends, if you don't need or want DX11 then X-Fire would be the best choice I'm sure.

    What power supply do you have?
  2. System specs as follows:

    AMD 955 BE
    MSI 790FX-GD70
    OCZ AMD Edition 4GB DDR3
    SAPPHIRE HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
    CORSAIR 650W
    Western Digital 750GB
    SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner
    Antec 300

    Kinda guessing that 650w will be pushing it...
  3. Acutally I'm pretty sure the Corsair 650w can power two 4890s according to these threads..

  4. cool, I thought I would be pushing the edge running two 4890's...

    Would switching over to a 5570 be a upgrade, aside from Direct X 11, will there be any other advantages. I don' really care about upgrading to DX11, unlees it's going to keep me from playing new games, like Fallout Vegas, etc.
  5. 5570 is much, much worse than a single 4890. If you wanted a DX11 upgrade from 4890 that would be "worth it" you would have to get a 5870 or GTX470
