Which Sony A mount camera is the best bet now?

So I have a Sony A500 which I bought in 2009. Its due for an upgrade. I actually almost decided on the A77 but backed out because I dont want to spend so much money and still get noisy photos at ISO400 (I rarely shoot over ISO 3200 but definitely shoot at 800 and 1600).

So then I thought about the A58. Wasn't sure if this is really an upgrade to my A500. Sub par LCD and EVF? Another point to note is that both the A77 and A65 are 2 years old now, so would it be better to just use my A500 for now and wait till 2014?

I currently have 3 A mount lenses (SAL70300G, SAL18250 and Minolta 50mm f/1.7)

Please give me some advice as I am going nuts
