Thanks for the replies everybody, really appreciate it. I may have jumped the gun before, but how much does tessellation matter? The 6870 seems to perform better than the 5870 when heavy tessellation is used (according to AT link)

Radeon HD 5870 vs Radeon HD 6870 Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare
AnandTech - AMD

Definitely will be aiming for a used card, hopefully some fellow Canucks will sell their cards to buy a 7970/7950 :D

EDIT: @Hossdaddy: Have a Corsair 850w, bought in Nov 2011. Gaming at 1920x1200. If bought online, it'll be from NCIX and can use points for free shipping :)
