If you find this useful, click the BEST ANSWER and then close this thread when done. Thanks.
I couldn't find benchmarks, however:
a) either card should get over 60FPS anyway (you should run capped at 60FPS VSYNC ON).
b) performance is probably similar to OTHER game benchmarks
c) are these cards comparable? Isn't the 650Ti a better card that costs more?
A good HD7770 1GB costs $80: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011
A good GTX650Ti 1GB costs $110: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130838
Get the BEST card you can afford, and make sure your POWER SUPPLY has the proper 6-pin connection.
If you have 64-bit Windows (I assume so with 8GB of RAM) then my advice is get 2GB of Video RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121725
*There's some information out there that says you can force Minecraft to use more Video RAM than 1GB which should then buffer more data and be useful in bigger worlds. I can't verify any of that though.

What you are doing is called "hijacking a thread"; it's bad form to jump into someone else's question and ask something.
To answer your question quickly try "HD7770 benchmarks" in Google and find a benchmark that has the 560Ti and HD7770 and/or 650Ti in the same benchmark.
Minecraft isn't too demanding so you might run at 60FPS, and if you can't just play with the settings. Just turn VSYNC OFF if possible then tweak until you're always above 60FPS while monitoring with FRAPS. Then turn VSYNC ON again.
UPDATE TO MY POST:
*I believe it's allocating the SYSTEM memory, not VIDEO that's done though someone reported 90% usage of his 1GB of Video RAM. I couldn't verify if anyone used MORE than 1GB.
