Generally it's a bad idea to get used gpu's because they're probably used till they reached the end of their life. That being said go with 7870. The 7870 also has better performance.

It's a 7850, does that still apply?

According to Tom, the 7850 is a bit better than the 560TI. Perhpas as importantly, the 560TI draws about 210W while the 7850 draws about 130W. The 7850 looks like a clear winner.

WOW, why does newegg sell this GeForce GTX 560 Ti for $240 new if the $180 card is clearly better?

Well, it sounds like the general concensus is that the 7850 is the way to go.
Thanks guys.
