Radeon HD 7850

It was on sale on Newegg for $109.99 after MIR (139.99 before), thought it was too good to pass up. Anyway despite it being outdated, it's a huge leap for me as I've been stuck on an HD 5750 since 2010. Was it a good idea buying it?

And my other questions are, can this card hold me over for at least year until I can upgrade to an even newer card? Will I be able to play upcoming PS4/Xbox One games that'll be out for PC such as Battlefield 4?

My current setup:
AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.0 ghz (I plan to upgrade this as well to an AM3+ CPU)
12 GB of 1333 DDR3
GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

a 7850 isn't outdated the 7000 seires is still AMD's newest card line up.

its just that 7850 is the weakest of what I would call the "gaming" series. But it gets respectable frame rates as long as your not asking it to max anything at over 40 fps or so.

I've been playing the bf4 beta with a 7870 on a mix of high and ultra settings with no problems so I assume a 7850 will do well.

A 7850 is good enough to max anything these days.

That's an amazing price for a 7850.

Wish we got deals like that down under
Is this even legal?
