What is prompting this upgrade? Are there games you can't run at full settings?
I have a 7870 and it is able to run everything on Ultra at 1080p at a decent framerate.
The games I had issues playing were Assassin's Creed 1, Crysis 2, Warhead and part 3, Tomb Raider, Splinter Cell Conviction, Far Cry 3. They were dipping in the 30s on maximum settings @ 1080p. To improve the FPS to the mid 40s thru low 50s, I lowered some of the gfx settings like AA, shadows, postprocessing (if applicable,) occlusion, detail, geometry (where applicable), screen resolution, etc.
