Second 4890 for CF or 5870?


Sep 10, 2004
I'm in the upgrade mood and am kinda stuck on the gfx part of the upgrade :confused: . Should I get another 4890 and Crossfire or get a 5870?

Crossfire would cost me $235 for the 4890 and a bigger psu. For the 5870 my psu should be fine, I think, so would only need to buy the card which would cost me ~$300 from the great [H] FS/T section :D.

I think my cpu is fine, but would upgrade to a phenom II x6 1090T if it would make a noticable difference in addition to the vid card upgrade.

Only game that I play is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at 1920x1080 and rest of specs are in sig.

Thanks in advance for any comments and/or suggestions :)
