i like the 6870 but i'm still waiting for the 6890 to come out, eventually. besides if you can hold on its likely going to drop the prices of the other 6xxx. look what happened to the 6850 after christmas.

yeah... he wants 200$ for the 4890's now... i was just looking for a cheap way to up on framerates cause i cant afford a new or newer card or crossfire :P

so i thought 2x 4890's would be a temporary upgrade till i can snatch some good ones for cheap also :P
