I am going to build a computer in about a month and I have all the parts figured out except the GPU. I am on a budget of $730

Here are the parts:
INTEL CORE I5 2500K PROCCESOR-$180 @microcenter
GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3 REV2.0-$35 @microcenter $50 dollars off
GSKILL RIPJAWS 8GB DDR3-1333MHz-$37 @newegg
EVGA GTX 560TI OR AMD RADEON 7850 $225/$260 @newegg
SEAGATE 500GB HDD 7200RPM SATA6.0GB/S-$75 @newegg
LITEON DVD BURNER-$15 @newegg
CORSAIR CX600V2 6OOW PSU-$70 @newegg
COOLERMASTER HAF 912-$60 @newegg

560ti price: $680
7850 price: $718

According to this http://www.anandtech.com/show/5625/amd-radeon-hd-7870-g... the 560 ti performs better than the 7850 in only BF3 but on most of the other games the 7850 wins. I am mainly going to play BF3 but i am still going to play other games too. Since the 7850 is better than the 560 ti, why is the performance of the 7850 worse than the 560ti? is it because of drivers? Please help me choose between these 2 cards keep in mind my budget is only $730.

Even they're at the same price, I'd definitely get the 560ti. Btw check out the 7850 review on Toms, you'll see why. Beside, AMD clock the heck out of their 7800s.
