pay the extra £32 for an xfx 4890, it will add a good 10-30% of performance,even more if you overclock it to 1ghz.

also up the PSU to a 1000w so you can add two 4890's later, or drop down to 750w for just a second card.

yeah that seems good.

The 750W corsair version is only 10 pounds cheaper (@ £103) which is why i chose the 850W thought it might provide some more power for the future.
