you can go for a 8770, or then the 7xxx series will receive a price drop

The 8xxx will not be out till the end of the year/q4 at the eariest according to AMD roadmap and AFAIK they are only releasing low end cards 7670/7730 until then

Getting the extra gb of vram is useful as the 7850 can make use of it

Best price/perf card for that res would be the 7870xt

7870xt > 7870ghz/7870 > 7850

The 7850 2gb can handle 1080p though just fine at high settings and low AA or no AA and ultra settings
