Go with HD 7850 and get an SSD. You won't notice the graphics card performance difference, because HD 7850 and HD 7870 are so close, but once you get an SSD, you will not want to live without it (speaking out of personal experience). It makes an illusion of your PC being very very fast. It boots up momentarily, launches most programs instantly.

It's just that I'm not sure if an ssd is worth it cuz if I go with ssd i cant get 7870, but if I go with 7870 I cant get a ssd. ive researched theses cards heavily and the 7870 is close to gtx 580 performance so yeah, idk what to do lol

Insane difference if you ask me. Once I got my SSD, rebooting stopped to be a burden, and I can reboot faster than I can pee (about 30 seconds). The programs that are installed on the SSD open up instantly, as if they were already open just minimized. When booting up, once I see the desktop - that's it, the loading is done. I can do anything without that annoying lag for 2 minutes, which happens with HDDs (they are still loading things).

yes going with 7850 with ssd will be an good choice because you will get two things at the same time just overclock your hd 7850 a bit to reach hd 7870 level so with that method you will get hd 7870 plus ssd so goodluck bro be happy with your upgrade have a nice day.:)
