As stated in the title, which is better for price and performance.

- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-HD7790-Retail-PCI-E-Gr... - for 100 GBP.

or

-http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/club3D-royalKing-HD-7850-2GB-... - Which if i offered him i could probably get it for 105 GBP.

My other components are. FX6100 @ 3.3GHZ (planning to Overclock to atleast 3.6/.7)
8GB 1333MHZ. 1TB HD.

I'm looking to play WoW in heavy crowded zones and raids at Ultra 60fps+ constantly. Battlefield 4 (Smooth and on High settings) and Day-Z smoothly also. Will my CPU bottleneck it because when i had a 7870 the performance wasnt alot greater than a 7750. but since its so cheap and i currently have a 4870 i want to try it again.

More about : 2gb 7790 2gb 7850

you had a 7870 and you didn't notice a difference from 7750 ugh ?
i would of paid 200$ for r9 270x so you can play bf4 ultra 1080 @ 50 average fps

I seriously didn't. but back then i was mainly playing Day-Z. where your FPS really depended on the server. Which was stupid for me at the time to not realize. but now thinking back on when i had it i did try BF3 and it ran great on ultra. but i was still quite annoyed because i was lagging contantly in Day-z

7850 is much better than 7790, so go for the 7850 out of those two choices.
PowerColor 7870 Myst edition at 140GBP is probably your best bang for buck at the moment if you can afford it, and should run fine with your FX.

you should of noticed fps/servers issues i bet card didn't had anything wrong with the game..you made a mistake cause you probably didn't know the issue.
i think you should start thinking for next gen games and go r9 270x , this gfx isn't god but its quite good for now and for some future games :)  cheap aswell , basicly 7870 is a r9 270x , but r9 270x is faster , especially when theyre getting mantle [bf4 will run better]

To play at those settings, you need a stronger video card, granted the 7850 2gb card is no push over, I'd rather save or just out right buy a new mid-tier card such as the gtx 760 2gb and later sli due to having comparable if not better performance than a 780 and gtx titan. Your cpu should be fine but if you do run it at higher settings it may bottle neck so consider a AMD FX 8350 [ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...] or 9370 [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., but no cpu cooler mind you] which are both on sale on newegg.com but the 9350 is marked down $120. Cards like 660Ti gtx or 760 gtxi is 32%- 40% stronger than the 7850 2gb model or grab a R9 270x [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...] that is 15% better.

But regardless, any choice you'd make will be a major upgrade from your current card. In my opinion, i would save for at least a 660ti or a 760 from a 7850 for 2 reasons, stronger driver support from Nvidia and price per performance.
