Hi, I have £230 to upgrad my current system, I was thinking something along the lines of an 4890 and an OCZ ModXstream 700w.

Current Spec

Intel Dual Core E5300 2.6 GHZ
XFX 4850
Hyper x 4GB 1024mhz
ASUS P5Q PRO
Arctic 500w http://www.pc-store.gr/product_details.php?category_id=17&item_id=885

What do you guys think? Im stuck on what to buy, or maybe another XFX 4850 and go crossfire with the OCZ power supply???

If I were you, wait for the new DX11 graphics cards to come at the end of the month and either buy a GTX 285 (only if the price drops enough) or the new 5850 (looks like it will cost around £200). Use the rest of the money to buy a good CPU cooler (like this) and overclock your CPU to atleast 3.5GHz.
