That's fine. Each one of them in your list can do max on that lcd. Tech stuff depreciate so quickly so get it when you need it. The price of powerful GPU can drops fast 12 months from now, and that is almost for a 22" lcd. I am not against the upgrade so go for the cheaper one between 5870 and 6870. With that says, you also need to check cpu and psu you have before the purchase.
