The amount of VRAM I suspect wont be an issue at those resolutions.
Get the 2GB model and overclock it yourself.

HD 7850 is overclocking beast. So get one with 2 GB and OC it.

Agreed. More Ram is always better, When it comes to video cards especially. The new norm will soon be at least 2 GB. When i jumped from 1-2 GB i didn't notice a huge boost in FPS, but i noticed i could handle more additional features, ie: AA and maxed every detail

It allows more room to keep the card longer without the need to purchase a newer one.

3 GB would be overkill
2 is currently the sweet spot from a 6950 or higher.

The one to see go on sale is the 7950, That would be just excellent... If it dropped to 250 one day i would have no issue getting it.

Expect the 8870 to be awesome as well.

Those resolutions wont really require 2Gb, but there is no reason to not get it for the future proofing aspect.
