Upgrading from Gt 520 Advice needed


Feb 14, 2012
Hey guys, I really need to upgrade my gpu asap and i need your guys opinion and what to choose.

Current Build:
i5 3570k 3.4ghz
Gt 520 2gb Oc from 860 to 1000mhz, 533 to 680
Gigabyte z77x-ud3h
WesternDigital 500gb hdd
G. Skill Sniper 8gb 2x4gb 1866mhz
Ultra 600w
Diablotek eVo

My budget is $250 but if i have to spend 10 to 20 more i might consider it. I'm gonna be playing games like NS2, GTA IV, Planetside 2, Bf3 at 1080p. I've been looking at these cards

I was wondering if the extra 30-40 for the 7870 be worth it? Also would it be better to wait till Nvidia and Amd come out with the new gpu's and wait for a price drop?
Hd 7870 ghz edition would be perfect choice.it can easily maxout games at 1080p.its your decision you want to wait for next series.if you can wait then wait.
