Looking at your specs and going off modern games (for reference i'll be using Bad Company 2, Black Ops etc) I would stick to 720p to maintain good frame rates.

The dual core Phenom is limiting your potential here, is there any possibility to upgrade to a quad core? The 6870 will handle 720 fine, but may struggle at 1080. If you want to go to 1080, then I suggest turning settings down, AA and other post processing effects off.

you will be fine in most games even the upcoming games. but for extra performance..

unlock your dual core into a quad core if your motherboard supports it.

Actually, if your CPU is the bottleneck, increasing the resolution shouldn't change much as it's mostly GPU strain you will be adding. You will probably be able to play many games decently with that card; up until about a month ago I was still running an Intel E8400@3.6Ghz with a GTX 260 and I could play most games at 1680x1050.
