    Hello guys, I'm going to upgrade my monitor to LCD23 1920x1080, and I would like to play most games at 2xAA/4xAA @ 1920x1080. I have this cards available and all are priced same
    1- HD4870 Vapor-X 2GB 750/3600
    2- HD4870 Toxic 1GB 780/4000
    3- HD4890 1GB 850/3900
    And last available choice is to get another HD4770 and make crossfire.

    Thanks

    If they are all priced the same, get the 4890 without a doubt! (forget 4x AA when you can have 8x or 16x!) Sell your 4770 since there is a good demand for them. :toast:

    I'd get another HD4770 and upgrade later on when 5800 series is out. :cool:

    what about this? please

    what about between this cards:

    MSI R4890-T2D1G OC Radeon HD 4890 1GB (Overclocked at 880MHz) $199 with $30 rebate total $169 A/R (newegg)

    SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB $149 with $10 Rebate total $139 A/R (newegg)

    i know the 4890 is better but is MSI and saphire is better for me, please somebody help me to get the better choice, i want best performance but taking in consideration, money, quality, etc. i means is a big difference between the cards for the $30 and brand name? or maybe i have to take the MSI to get better performance, oh my god i need help ja ja LOL
