Default Replace my old HD 4890

Guys,

Lately I upgraded my PC to :

Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen3
core i7 2600 K (overclocked to 4.5ghz) stable
Kingston 1333mhz 16GB
700w OCZ PSU
60gb Corsair GT3 Sata3 SSD
Diamond HD 4890 XOC
Display : 1920x1080

I still need to upgrade the VGA

I would like to have your ideas on this
Should I go for :
HD 7770 Crossfire
HD 6850 Crossfire
HD 6870 Crossfire
GTX 570

My budget is $350

Advice please.

Wait a week for new nvidia cards to be released (or atleast the reviews to come out).

sky (editor/ kinda head reviewer) just said yesterday to wait a few days since the 78xx series is to be released and we'll be pleasantly surprised about them and even if you dont want them you can get the 68xx series even cheaper. but out of your choices either the 6870 crossfire the 570 or a 6970 if you can find one for sale still but i vote wait or to get a 6970
