7770, it'd work great for the ITX build.

the gap between a 7770 and a 7850 is moderately large in performance(enough that i would assume an OC 7770 is still a bit under a standard 7850), but what kind of games you play, you wont see much of a difference.

Games I play most are walking dead portal 2 l4d2 minecraft nd maybe down the line the new barman game birderabds 2 and dishonored so how close will it get to a 7850 if were talking 5 % then a 99 dollar gpu sounds awesome

theres about a relative ~20fps difference between a stock 7770 and a stock 7850. Assuming if you can magically overclock to its limits, it would maybe bring it closer to 10 fps, but note that this is comparing it to stock 7850, which is like 860Mhz. though from the games you play, you should get at least ~40 fps with a stock 7770 clocks, which is entirely playable.



you have to remember why there is a large performance gap between a 7850 and 7770 in the first place. the 7850 originally started out as 100$ more than the 7770, even if the price changes, doesnt mean the performance gap has moved much =X

Thanks for the info I've been doing some looking around on other forum posts and it looks like a 7850 is the way to go some people stated that the 7850 has a lot of headroom but looking at newegg the sapphire 7870 is 185 after Mir so now I'm thinking of getting this what are your thoughts cheapest 7850 is 159 after Mir

Well if u can get the 7870 it will much better than 7850... (but it came with price :D )

Spoiler


U can use above as a guideline.... (It just random pick, but the idea is same :D )
