Ok i just built myself a new rig
AMD Phenom 2*6 1090T
6GB DDR3 RAM 1333MHZ
600WATT PSU
XFX ATI RADEON HD 4890
But i have nor noticed a big increase in fps on most games i play.crysis warhead performance only increased by 1fps ,nfs shift 10 fps slower.metro 2033 IS ACTUALLY RUNNING BETTER ON MY GTX 260.Is there a problem with my rig coz this rig with a 4890 should samsh my other gtx 260.there are minimal gains in fps in all games.
MY Other rig
Intel core i7 870 processor
6GB DDR3 RAM
650W PSU
MSI NVIDIA geforce gtx 260 CORE 216 1792 MB SINGLE CARD LIGHTNING EDITION

Using catalyst 10.3 coz the other newer ones slowed my performance in other games

The difference between the 4890 and the GTX 260 216 1.7GB edition, is kind of small. The 4890 is better, but not my much. And games that are heavy in physx and TWIMTBP, like Metro 2033, the GTX 260 216 edition will outperform it.

I don't know who told you it would "smash" a GTX 260 216 1.7GB edition, but it shouldn't. It will perform better, but not great deal.

EDIT - Your other computer with the 260 has a lot better CPU too.

Well its better just not by a lot.

I think you might want to go for the GTX 460, 1GB version preferably, if you can afford it. Otherwise I don't think the upgrade will be justifable.

With what? The GTX 460? You can expect a lot more then 5fps in gains in those games.

Why don't you try the 4890 in the other computer, I bet it would work better on that 870 then the AMD CPU.

I think your cpu might be the problem there. Theres many people that are disappointed witht the x6 game performance.

crysis and metro 2033 mainly rely on gpu more than cpu.so the performance should be a lot higher than just 1 or 2 fps
