I know some of the better cards will be bottlenecked in his system, but he informed me that he will be using this same video card when he builds a new system later on. My first thought was the ATI Radeon 4670 being that it only uses about 60W at full load. Can he get any better than this? Price is $140 max and he doesn't want to upgrade his PSU no matter how hard I try to convince him...don't ask me why
Thanks in advance!
8600gts or 9500gt
or 3850 or 4670
