Sure, but how much depends upon what monitor you have. What is the size and resolution?

I have tv's, not an actual computer monitor.

Well I have a 47" vizio 1080p

and a 19in isymphony I bought when I was in Japan. It is 1366x768 LCD LED. contrast ratio of 10,000 if that means anything.

So 1920x1080 resolution on a 47" display. It partially depends on what games (presuming this is going to be used for gaming) you're looking to play and at what detail level. You could drop to a 7850 like this Gigabyte 7850 and probably not notice a difference in performance at all. You could probably even drop to a 7770 although you would notice a difference in performance and would likely need to cut down on graphical detail level a bit depending on the games in question.

when looking at anandtech's bench performances, and comparing GPUs, i should be looking at 1680x1050 or 1920x1200? Im guessing 1680x1050 since thats closer to 1080p right?

Did i mention I know nothing about this crap. Just what I am picking up on these sites lol.

Native resolution on a display that lists itself as 1080p is 1920x1080 so those are the benches that you should be paying attention to when looking at benchmarks.
