Thanks but do you think I would be better off with the 7770, you make it sound like the 7850 would be overkill? If I can save 100 dollars and still get good performance I'll take it.
I wouldn't drop all the way down to a 7770, but I have a couple suggestions that might meet you "halfway".
How about a 6870? Its somewhere in between the 7850 and 7770.. It performs a little under the 560 TI on the Nvidia side and better than 550 TIshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948
Speaking of 560 TIs, this little bumblebee could be yours for $180 after mail in rebatehttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500196
