Actually if you had that kind of budget I suggest you upgrade your platform. Most of your components will be the bottleneck if you get a 7850. Here's my recommendation

Intel
-----
CPU: i5-3570K
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) RAM
Motherboard: $130 Z77 Motherboard
PSU: 500-600W PSU like the seasonic S12II 620.

AMD
-----
CPU: FX8320
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) RAM
Motherboard: $130 Motherboard
PSU: 500-600W PSU like the seasonic S12II 620.

shouldnt be too confusing, yes i suggested a cpu that your motherboard will support, its a lot cheaper than what ezioas suggested, but it probably wont be a lot faster, just 10-20%. you will get bottlenecks but u should be able to run games smoothlu at around 1400x1000 resolutions. but your powersupply will need to be upgraded too so thats also some money that needs to be spent.
