I finished building my budget gaming pc almost two Mitch's abomination and as a soon to be 14 year old (June 25) I can get an early b-day present. I bought the rig with my own money.

My 550tinthat I got for free died permanently, and am about to get then 7770. 99$+ a 15$'mail in rebate equals only 84$. Would the 6850 be better used? This is newer and smaller, and I will over-clock if needed.
Forgot to mention I have dual 1680x1050 monitors, and since this has 1 dvi, I will switch to only one, and later upgrade to a single 1080p monitor (Christmas). I play skyrim, grand theft auto, batman games,just cause 2, bio shock, battlefield, counterstrike, etc all siting in my steam library
the 6850 would do slightly faster. but the hd 7770 is great for its price. also getting 1600Mhz ram is better.
The thing is that I already built this pc, just don't have a gpu yet. Deciding which one to get. Do you think the 6850 is worth it after these: no dx12 support, huge, loud, hot, higher tdp. In raw performance it is better, but after all of that is it? Also the 7770 is new, and 6850 used from amazon. Also, the r7 260x is 94$ Used, but I hate the way the gigabyte one looks
