HD 7870 is better than a HD6950. The 7870 is a great card for 1080p performance. HD7950 is excellent performance at 1080p maxxed settings and higher settings with lower detail.
For your case, I would go with the HD7870.
EDIT: You really don't need to upgrade since their site lists a recommended GPU of at least a HD 4870. The HD6850 is better than that. I would wait until the game comes out and test your current graphics card. If you don't like the performance at 1680x1050 resolution then go for that upgrade.Edited by aznpersuazn - 8/6/13 at 4:52am
