I'm probably going to go with this one: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102984

It seems to be the highest rated 7850 on Newegg.

I am currently in the same situation as you, with a max budget of $300 US, im trying to decide between the HD7850, HD6950, and GTX570. With the current prices, it seems like the GTX570 is the best bet, although Nvidia is releasing some newer GPU's in a few weeks, which could change their pricing on older GPU's.

My advice is to wait a couple weeks, and see what that will do for the pricing of the current GPU's. If you want to go with a GPU now, the GTX570 is only $20 more than the HD7850 you linked, and should perform better. You will however be losing the PCIE 3.0 capabliity, and a bit of V-Ram. Here is the one I have been looking at

570 is only barely faster then the 7850 and has less OC headroom. I would definitely go with the 7850 over it. Otherwise I'd wait two months and check out what the 660ti looks like.

Also 570's blow up if you clock them high. 7850 and the 7*** series in general are some of the best OCing cards ever released.

The HD7xxx series hasnt been out long enough to make a statement like that, sure they may OC high, that I will give you, but there hasnt been enough time elapsed to determine if they are reliable at high clock speeds for extended periods of time.
Also, you are assuming that the OP is going to be overclocking his GPU, while it is generally a safe assumption considering where we are biggrin.gif, it may or may not be the case. The GTX570 stock is faster than the HD7850 stock, thats all I am saying. IF the OP decides he wants to overclock his GPU, then the HD7850 may be a better fit for him.

Edit:

Also, in every title except Skyrim, the HD7850 is only on par with the performance with the GTX570 at their max OC achieved, so thats an overclocking HD7850 vs a reference GTX570.

Being that the HD7850 is so close in price compared to the GTX570, I would rather purchase the card that is guaranteed to have better performance out of the box. Overclocking headroom is not a guarantee, its a gamble, therefore to me, its not worth my time. If AMD can somehow squeeze more performance out of the HD7850 with newer drivers, my opinion may change.
