Not sure which card to get?

I planned on getting the MSI 7870 but now I don't know if I should get something else. Is this considered balanced? Or should I get a more powerful card? This is my build. I want to be able to play games on high settings without it looking like crap or lagging.

Thanks any help is appreciated.

Well have you got the gpu you said $239.99 at newegg, I have seen it a lot cheaper than that on amazon if you want to have a look, gpu wise it's a beast of a gpu for the money, definitely go for it :)
