Upgrade from HD5770

Now that the 28nm lineups are set, I'm starting to think upgrade. Thinking in mind of running current & next-couple-of-years games at possibly 1920x1080.

I have 3 serious contenders:
GT670
HD7850
HD7870

Is the extra $100 worth it for the HD7870?

Left-field consideration:
HD7950?

My current config:
Coolermaster HAF-912 chassis
Coolermaster 800W PSU
EVGA Z68 MoBo
i7-2600 @ 3.4Ghz
8GB RAM
XFX HD5770 @ stock

Let's say I'm not interested in SLI/X-Fire, or OC'ing in general.

I really like the power usage profiles of the AMD cards, especially as I keep my PC running overnight.

But once the GT670 settles and availability is better, is it going to beat the AMD cards out? Early indications are it might, certainly if the problems with GT680 supply never fix themselves.
