Upgrading ATi Radeon HD XFX 4890

I am looking at upgrading my current GPU and am hoping for some recommendations...

BUDGET RANGE: £150-200

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: main use for gaming - e.g. Arma 2, Battlefield 3. Also looking at Crysis 3 and Arma 3 when they are released.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Ati Radeon HD XFX 4890 1GB - Silverstone ST85EF Element 850Watt

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Phenom 2 x4 965 BE @ 3.4ghz - Asus M4a79-T Deluxe - 4gb (2x2gb) Corsair TwinX XMS3 DDR3

Case and cooling: Sharkoon Rebel 9 Value Silver Edition 1x120mm Front Case Fan/1x240mm Side Case Fan/2x80mm Exhaust fans

PARTS PREFERENCES: leaning towards another Ati card but will take any suggestions

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080


Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. I got a Powercolor 7950PCS+ not long ago, and I'm quite happy with the performance. It's overclocked from factory and has very good cooling unit slapped on it.

    nvidia 670 & 680 bellow that sucks

    how do you know that they such i have had a 660 ti,670 and a 7950 and i like the 670 better because it suits me better for the games i play and all the work i do.just because you don't like them doesn't mean that they"suck"
