You will have to tell us the price you are considering for a used HD 7870 if you want alternatives. DX12 isn't so important at those price ranges. Also maybe listing the rest of the system would help. No sense buying more graphics card than the CPU can keep up with.

The HD 7870 should not bottleneck the 2C/4T i5-650. So it would be a good choice for your system. I doubr you'll find a stronger card for $45. Don't worry about it lacking DX 12. Not an issue for most games you would be able to play.
Performance-wise, the HD 7870 is about equal to today's GTX 1050 or slightly better than the RX 560.

Is the HD 7870 you are looking at 2GB VRAM?
