Hello, just like the titles says I'm searching for a new GPU with a $150-200 budget to top my old GPU Radeon HD 5870. Here are my Specs and other information :)  Thank You.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week.

BUDGET RANGE: $150-200

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: I will be mostly gaming and watching not so high definition movies/tv shows. The games I will be playing are Battlefield 3 on high/meduim settings, Arma 3 on low/meduim, Arma 2 on low/meduim, Batman Arkham Origins on high, and other small games on high settings like Gmod, Borderlands 2, Minecraft, and Assassin's Creed 3, etc.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Radeon HD 5870 and Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply(Planning on getting a new one).

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU: Intel Core i3 CPU 530 @ 2.93GHz(Quad-Core), MoBo: BIOSTAR TH55B HD LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard, Memory: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) and Samsung F1 HD252HJ 250GB (HDD)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Frys.com in US Wilsonville, Oregon

PARTS PREFERENCES: I prefer ATI cards. If none are available I will go with PhysX cards next, and XFX cards last or which ever you prefer is the best (PhysX/XFX) and most reasonable to get :) .

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI/CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Looking for one that will top my old GPU.

Best solution

I believe a Radeon 7870 would fit your needs quite nicely. It's a solid performer and a pretty good value for the money. But if you're willing to look around for deals on Black Friday, you can probably pick up a 7950 for the same money.

So would you prefer 7850 over 7870 in terms of performance?

Well, for the price of the 7850 I would be hooked - 7870 will offer more performance at a higher $.
