^ GTX 260 is good, though a 4850 x2 destroys it for the same price.

It's REALLY not a good time to buy a 4890. AMD is about to release a 5xxx equivalent, which will cause the price of the 4890 to plummet. Currently, there is nothing in that performance range in the 5xxx series, so the 4890 remains at the same price it was before. You might as well get a 4850 x2 considering its only $20 more, and has much higher performance.

^ Definitely the G.skill.

As far as video, an HD 5770 is good. What is your budget?
You could also go ebay and look for a used 4870 or 4850.
