Card advice replacement for my HD7950

I will be sending back my Gigabyte HD7950 card and getting a refund after I have had problems with both the original card I ordered and its RMA replacement. I would like to order a new card as soon as this transaction is complete and would like some advice.

I currently run a EVGA P55 SLI MB, I5-750 cpu overclocked to 3.7ghz. I currently have 2x Radeon 5770 cards in crossfire. I use a corsair 750watt psu and 2x 23" Acer 1980x1920 monitors. I use my computer primarily for gaming purposes and always tend to have a movie or tv show on my 2nd monitor.

I am looking for a card that handles my current demands and hopefully grows well with upcoming game releases. I would prefer to be able to hold off upgrading it or adding a 2nd card in sli/xfire for as long as possible. I don't really have much of a price range, except no GTX 690, but I would prefer to get good value out of my purchase. I figured the Gigabyte HD7950 fit all this criteria beautifully however it has been nothing but a disaster.

I welcome your recommendations, Thank you for your time.

Have you had luck with the Sapphire cards before? Would a Radeon 9770 bottleneck with my CPU and a PCI-E 2.0 interface?

yes the sapphire cards are amazing and with 2.0 not and the cpu it might a little but you can always oc to 4GHz to help it
