Is this the best bang for the buck in this price range?

Or would you suggest the gtx 460? Or another card?
You should try to stay away from XFX at all costs. Their customer service has taken a nosedive, and at many times they're denying RMAs. Get the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 instead if he wants single card. At $200, though, not much changes. I don't get how you're gonna fit that into the budget, though. The 6850s are $170. I still think the best choice is that 5830 since it's 55% less expensive and only 15% slower than the 6850. Get it with the Antec NEO ECO 620C I mentioned before and he'll save some money and be able to CrossFire later on. If he needs modular, he can get the Antec EarthWatts EA750 for $20 more. So, $110 for the GPU + $90 for the PSU means he breaks even.

$205 instant

$155 after MIR

The graphics card is boss you can max crysis with 4x AA, and 650w of bronze means you can eventually get another 460 and sli the two.
Thanks for the help! that gpu would be perfect for my friend! Question though.. why is it so cheap? i know its 768mb rather than 1 gb but thats abnormally cheaper. Any reasons?
