    It's time for xfire since Metro 2033 won't run completely smooth maxed out (seems poorly optimized, nice graphics though). So, I need a 4890 :) Almost any good brand will do (so no xfx :laugh:).
    Thanks!

    EDIT: Mmmm, I guess I forgot to put a detail in here. I want used cards only. I'm not looking to stick a new card in my aging system even if it's only a little more in cost. It's just past the limit and what it's worth to me.

    Semi joke. They pissed me off with the 7900GTs (kept shipping defective samsung memory ones for several months and continued to ship them as RMA replacements).

    Plus, they made that non reference, ultra cheap components, POS 4890. It couldn't overclock at all and would likely fail really fast. They deserve nothing.

    I think that's the PCB rev with the bad batch. Probably why he has tons of them. Saw lots of threads and people showing really low benchmarks. The cards didn't even perform correctly.

    I was actually talking about overclocking101 but I have traded with you before too. :laugh:

    I have traded with the majority of the traders on TPU actually. I don't usually exchange heatware unless the other person wants too. :)

    Hey, you can buy a brand new XFX with double lifetime warranty for $209 which is probably the smartest thing to do since I just bought the Sapphire from overclocking101.:nutkick:

    hehe...now I'm kind of looking for another one too, although I won't be able to afford it for a few weeks. I don't really need 2 for socket 939, but I can always use them in another system later. :toast:

    If the clock is high enough (2.9 isn't bad), then perf will be pretty good.

    Have you see the metro 2033 CPU reviews? It only uses 2 cores and it doesn't matter if they're 2.0 or 3.6. The FPS is identical. That's crazy.
    Bad Company 2 is a joke. Typical EA crap. It needs quad core, that's absurd. It doesn't even look good.

    BC2 runs pretty good at 16 x 10 with my 720BE + 4670 on all medium settings, get about 50FPS. The 720 is not running at 100% at all. So I guess a better card would do even better.

    Another thought, why not sell ur 4890 and get a 5850 (or even 2 x 5770?) or something like that? Will it still be a weak one for the game you are trying to play?

    just my 2 cents.

    I'm not downgrading to a 5770 haha. xfire doesn't always work so then games would be unplayable. 5850 would still be too slow.

    You could probably get that xfx for $150. I just paid $145(sapphire) and $155(xfx) for the two I bought. You might get lucky and find one cheaper I suppose. Good luck, I'll keep looking for you.
