The best bang for the buck is the HD 6950, it's slower than the 570 though. But the standard 2GB version can be flashed into HD 6970. Or an overclocked 6950

or a HD 6970 (trades blows with the 570, it's better at bigger resolutions, slower at lower resolutions, about the same at 1920x1080 but less power consumption.
