Here are my current specs: Graphics: HD4850s IceQ4 TurboX (2 in XfireX ) CPU: Core2 E8500 3.16GHz (o'cd to 3.8) Motherboard: Gigabyte X48-DS4 Memory: 4GB Dominator 1060Mhz Heatsink: Freezer 7 Pro PSU: Corsair 750w I'd like to play current and upcoming games @ 1920x1080 w/ eye candy enabled. Should I try to maintain XFire capabilities? If so, is the HD 4890 the best card I can upgrade to and still maintain XFire mode? Not sure I'm clear on the compatibility chart . thanks in advance.
