I'm upgrading my rig over the break and I'm buying things as deals come in. I'm currently moving from an AMD Tri-core to an Ivy Bridge i5. I currently have an AMD 5770 and I'm looking to upgrade that as well.

Question: AMD 7850 or 7870? Or Other?

Newegg has a 7870 for $225 USD + $20 Rebate
The cheapest Newegg 7850 2GB (of one of my preferred brands) is $190 USD.

I don't do any overclocking and this is for gaming, so given these details which should I choose?

Thanks.
