While you are nowhere near maxing out the fillrate on the 4890, you may see better performance in heavy clouds with the 5850. Also if you are running a high resolution e.g. 1920 x 1080 you may see a modest bump in framerates. KJ

Thanks for that. I run @ 1900 X 1200. I notice on some forums they are saying that these new 5xxx cards are much better for running Flight sims.I may save myself A$425. Most of the time I Overclock to 4.09GHz with good results except @ Orbx's Ymml where things get very slow.
