WHy get rid of a card if it can play whatever you are playing? I see no sense in upgrading unless there is an actual need. Selling a card because it will be worth less money in the future is just not good advice.

I use my laptop to play games. It has a G210M video card which is hardly high end. It plays everything I want and even does it with medium or better settings.

Honestly, don't change the card just to change it. Only change it if it is truly suffering to render the games you play. The HD4890 is still a good card, it just lacks DX11 features.
