Your processor won't bottleneck anything short of a dual-GPU card.

I would recommend the 7850, as its pretty cheap right now depending on how much you are willing to spend. Here's a good setup with a 7850 that saves you alot of money:

Look for PSU's by name brands (Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, XFX)

Out of the two, GTX 570 is around 18-20% faster. So if you can get it at the same price, go for that one. However, you should also look at GTX 660, which is a decent card at similar price range. It competes with HD 7870.

Both HD 7850 and GTX 660 would work with this PSU:

They usually have cherry-picked GPUs, those that OC better.
