i5 2500k from microcenter $149

GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 LGA 1155 from microcenter $40 after rebate as a combo with the i5

16gb G.Skills ripjaw x ddr3 1600 $60 from newegg

Seagate 2tb 3.0gb/s $50 from tigerdirect last year BF

Total spent apx $490 with tax

Was thinking about crossfiring the 4890 with this 4870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814103193
what do you think, worth it or would it be better to wait and upgrade the video card with something more powerful when the HD 7 series come out later next year?

if its because of the video card the 4890 is a bit faster than a 6770 just without dx11 support
its also on par with a 550TI which is a pretty decent mid range card
