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.

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?

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...

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.

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
