IMO it would rip it apart :D Seriously, a HD 7850 is faster than my HD 5870 and I have no problems maxing out all the games I play (yes Metro 2033 can get heavy at some parts, but it's hardly visible).
I think you can't go wrong with the 7850 for that price. If you want a bit more juice you can get a 7870 which could be in your price range.
