I would like to spend around $200.

Yes that's a good card for the price. I had that exact same card but it crapped out on me but was great when it was working. I had to RMA it but received a 7950 as replacement so it worked out well for me :)

Would it be able to run AC:Black Flag, Far Cry 3 and BF3/4 at 1080p decently? Using a AMD quad 3.2ghz CPU.

Or should I spend more on a R9 270x or 760?!

R9 270X is just a faster rebrand of the HD7870.
i still haven't found what i'm looking for...

The CPU is going to cut down on those games a lot. All of the games you mentioned are CPU heavy games.

i just sold myh asus 7870 for 155 on ebay, i suggest you look harder because 200 is kind of expensive, espicially now that the 2gb of vram is basically being pushed to its limit with current games.
