Depends what games you're playing on what settings. 1 for now, but on high settings you might need 2 down the road. But I would say just 1, that's a high end card anyhow.

I find that a GTX 260 Core 216 or even a 275 will do.
Anything else isn't really needed, not even by the gamer (Usually)

Yeah..truly anything over a 275 is overkill. But, if you have the money, by a gtx 260 and buy another one later or a 275..idk.

You'll really only need one HD 4890 to run your games. If you find you need more firepower down the road, you could always grab another and run them in Crossfire.
