With all due respect (and I can say this because I have a C2Q) that's a terrible idea.

LGA 775 is on its last legs in the enthusiast sector, but AMD is surprisingly backward- and forward-compatible, so even when AM3 is dead it will likely support AM4 and/or AM4 will support it. Basically, needing a new CPU won't mean a whole new system.

This depends on the resolution of course, but I'd recommend a 5770 over a 4890. It's a bit slower (only about as good as a 4870) but it's still good and generally $20-$40 cheaper.
