The 7850, at $250:

The 6850, at $135:

Or the 560 Ti, at $200

It really depends on how much you want to spend, but I'd recommend any of those at their respective price points. If you plan to do heavy overclocking then I would get the Radeon 7770 over the 6850. The 6850 gets about 37 FPS average in BF3 on High. Not exactly the best; I would settle for medium. The 560 Ti and the 7850 both do well on High settings, each averaging 60+ FPS.

At stock, the 560ti is better for BF3, but you can OC the 7850 to GTX 580 levels, something the 560ti cannot do, and then the 7850 is more powerful.
