  1. what's the rest of your build? specs, PSU? what about resoultion?

    i use the 6870 and it's great for a mid range card. it will plays all games fine (depending on settings) @ 1080.

  5. 1366 x 768 a 6870 will max most everything. At 1920 go with the 7850, because the 6870 is starting to fall behind at that resolution.
    7850 runs cooler too, which will bring better overclocks when it starts dragging it's heels.

    How about a 7850 at that 1366 x 768 ?

    Overkill at that resolution.
    In all seriousness if you're gonna upgrade your monitor to 1080 anytime soon go with the 7850.

    Overkill won't harm the GPU right ?
