You can plug in the two cards here for a bechmark, (http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=680). Don't know how to link yet but just copy/paste it into your browser. Also if you look in the Tom's articles under graphics they do a best graphics card for the money comparison and just look for the January one. It recommends the both cards at their price points but out of personal experience I would go for the 7850 for the extra performance and bit of futureproofing. There are reviews everywhere saying the 7850 or its big brother 7870 are the kings of price to performance. A little searching on the internet led me to say that cpu will bottleneck, so a 6300 or even a 8350 if you can swing it would be a good option if you plan on sticking with AMD.
