my 4890 has so many problems i dont know where to begin. it has died twice & been baked twice. It wont play almost any games in DX10 & it has a major fan problem where you have to set a % in order for it to stay running or it wont really run at all
as for that 300 dollar budget that is with this buying a new gpu + sending out my 4890 for RMA. which i gotta get sent out.
Even when the 4890 was running perfect i wasnt happy with it. I couldnt run real high settings in stalker, crysis or metro. So im my eyes with crysis 2 coming out I just didnt see the 4890 as a viable card anymore
Well, fair enough but a couple things to mention:
None of that was in your OP, no mention of the card in bad shape and being baked twice, nothing about you ever being happy with it.
And preferences are preferences - for my viewing pleasure, I don't need max AA and super-all-high-top-out-every-setting for all my games. Some people like more eye candy than others I can settle for a mix.
If you weren't happy with your 4890, switch sides, try Nvidia.
